A BRIGHTER FUTURE

Trees & Skis

By Erika Kazi and Ian Peisner

Formally known as Ski with an Arborist, Trees and Skis is a free tour program offered in coordination with Tree Utah. These tours are dedicated to educating the public and our guests about the history and future of our forests.

During the tour, we will investigate the native species that make up our favorite tree runs and learn about how these beloved trees form essential habitat for our furry neighbors. We, at Brighton, can’t wait to show you our beloved landscape!

Why Tour with an Arborist? 

The trees at Brighton resort provide ample fun turns, homes for our local animals, shade from the sun and a carbon sink for some of the emissions produced by the resort and surrounding communities. Much of the property is considered a part of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest. 

In the tour with Tree Utah, guests can learn about the ecosystem, the trees & plants that make up the community and engage in discussion on the past and future of this landscape. You'll learn about how you can help in Tree Utah and Brighton’s efforts to preserve our amazing forest.
