Welcome to Brighton Chalets
The Brighton Chalets are centered in the heart of Utah’s Brighton Ski Resort area where, at an elevation of 8,755 Feet, we have a higher base elevation than any other Utah ski area! And with an average snowfall of over 500 inches per year, it’s no wonder why we open our doors and runs first each season! We are located in Brighton, Utah, just 19 miles east of Salt Lake City at the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon.
During the summertime, Brighton is peaceful and serene, but not lacking adventurous activities! You can cast your fishing line into the nearby Silver Lake, which is constantly filled with trout. Not into fishing? You can leisurely wander around the lake enjoying the beautiful views of nature on the environment-protecting boardwalk. These activities are an easy 5-minute walk from our chalets. For those in search of a more difficult hike, there are four beautiful mountain lakes that constantly draw the attention of the ambitious hiker. The popular Guardsman’s Pass mountain biking trails bring spectacular views and perfect terrain. Photographers have a heyday at Brighton because of the many amazing images to capture which include fields of the famous Brighton wild flowers. The views captivate tourists as well, who are making their way to Brighton Chalets. After exploring the area and taking advantage of the many activities, most days end with a relaxing evening BBQ.
Skiers and snowboarders enjoy an easy 3-minute walk to the Brighton Ski Resort lifts to experience the lighter-than-air snow! Positioned just across the street from Brighton Resort’s Milly Express, Brighton Chalets provide easy access to the mountain resort! Thanks to the over 500 inches of powder each winter, Brighton’s famous “Highest Base Elevation of 8,577 Ft.” is the best wintertime skiing in the area. No one gets more snow than we do! With the abundance of snow located right in Brighton Chalet’s backyard, wintertime activities include skiing and snowboarding at Brighton Resort (discount passes available), cross-country skiing at Solitude’s Nordic Center, and snowmobiling over Guardsman’s Pass, to mention the more vigorous activities. Everyone, even the seasoned locals, is awestruck by the pristine beauty of Brighton’s winter wonderland, the epitome of the “Greatest Snow on Earth.”
We feature individual private chalets of all sizes for guests who want something more unique than the usual hotels or condos. Our cabins come in all sizes, from luxury bridal suites for honeymooners to 6,000 sq. ft. Chateau or Manor Chalets with a 1,500 sq. ft. grand room, which we built for ski clubs, family reunions, seminars, and meetings of all types. All of our units include fully furnished kitchens, TVs, DVD players, free high-speed Internet, fireplaces, and plenty of jetted tub! We are located across the street from the Brighton Resort’s Milly Express lift and the LDS Church (Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-Day Saints).
