Brighton-Solitude, Utah

If you make the pilgrimage to Utah’s Wasatch Range for some of the “greatest snow on earth,” you have more than a few resorts to choose from. Big Cottonwood Canyon and its accompanying resorts, Brighton and Solitude, stand out by offering a no-frills, affordable skiing experience with excitingly diverse terrain and expansive backcountry access, via a single-ride lift ticket and gates at the top of the resorts. But get there early because Utah’s resident and visiting powderhounds keep the canyon access road (SR190) packed during big dumps all season, especially if UDOT closes the gate elsewhere. When Guardsman Pass, at the top of SR190, opens up again in the summer, Big Cottonwood maintains its destination status with abundant opportunities to hike, camp, fly fish, mountain bike, climb, and backpack in the encompassing Wasatch-Cache National Forest.
