Mt. Brighton

Since 1960, Mt. Brighton Ski Area in Southeast Michigan has been one of the legendary family winter destinations on the Midwest snowsports scene. With a recent influx of $10 million of improvements including new chairlifts, enhanced learning terrain, new base area facilities and children’s ski and ride school center, Michigan’s most innovative terrain parks, and a new powerful state-of-the-art snowmaking system, the entire guest experience has been completely re-imagined and elevated above that offered by the competition. Skiers and riders from Detroit, Ann Arbor, Lansing and Northwest Ohio can easily access 26 trails and six lifts covering 130 acres. Having converted thousands of first-timers into lifelong skiers and riders, and now with the opportunity to take that passion to Vail Resorts’ iconic western mountains, Mt. Brighton is truly the place Where Epic Begins.
