Brighton Ski Patrol

At Brighton Resort safety is our top priority. We are committed to promoting responsibility and safety awareness. The members of the Brighton Patrol are dedicated to keeping you and the mountain safe. Patrol members are stationed at the top of all major lifts and routinely patrol the entire mountain.

Brighton Area Boundary Policy

When you pass beyond the Ski Area Boundary, you leave the area of ski patrol services including avalanche control. You are entering an area that has many natural hazards including avalanches. You are responsible for learning about and avoiding these natural hazards. You are responsible for your own actions, for your own rescue, for the cost of your rescue, and you waive all claims for injury.

Backcountry rescues are the responsibility of the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office, often assisted by Wasatch Backcountry Rescue. Backcountry rescues are costly and hazardous to rescue personnel, please use caution in the backcountry.

Please report any avalanche activity caused or witnesses to the Brighton Patrol, 801.532.4731.
