Parking at Brighton

Reducing traffic and strain on our beautiful canyon

Brighton Resort sits on protected forest service land. As we cannot expand the size of our parking lot, it's important you plan to make sure you get a spot. Our parking lot fills to capacity by mid-morning on weekends, powder days, and holidays.

What you need to know


Parking is back at normal capacity this season, however, the lot still fills up quickly most days. Please make sure you have a plan for how you will arrive at the resort. If you cannot take the ski bus, consider arriving at an off-peak time (before 8 a.m. or after 1 p.m.).

Sleep in on powder days


NEW FOR THE 21/22 SEASON. Book a V.I.P. parking reservation for guaranteed spot in the lot held until 12 p.m the day of your reservation. Simply show your reservation barcode to the lot attendant and roll right in, even if the lot is full! V.I.P. parking is located between Great Western and Explorer and has 100 spots available daily. If there are any no-shows, parking spots will be opened to the public after 12 p.m. 



1. ARRIVE AT THE RESORT DURING OFF-PEAK HOURS. On weekends, holidays and powder days, the Brighton parking lot fills to capacity during the mid-morning hours. To avoid being turned away at the lot, consider arriving at an off-peak time (before 8 a.m. or after 1 p.m.).

2. USE YOUR 7-HOUR TICKET. Day tickets at Brighton are 7-hours, which means you don't have to start right at 9 a.m. to get your money's worth. On Monday-Saturday when night skiing is open, consider planning an off-peak visit, such as 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. 

4. USE THE PARK-N-RIDES AT THE BASE. There are two park-n-ride lots at the base of the mountain for carpoolers and ski bus users. There is one smaller lot is at the base of Big Cottonwood Canyon (arrive early to avoid full lot) and a second, larger lot at 6200 S. and Wasatch Blvd. 

5. TAKE THE SKI BUS. Ease canyon congestion and take the bus. ROUTE 972 serves Big Cottonwood Canyon. 

6. GET PARKING UPDATES. Follow @BrightonResort on Twitter for updates about our parking lot capacity and road status. 

7. V.I.P. PARKING. Consider purchasing V.I.P. parking the day of your visit.
