Welcome, Mary. I'm sorry we didn't meet, but I did enjoy meeting and skiing with Carolyn. She's an incredible skier--I was really inspired by her crispness. I was very impressed with Brighton and all of the people there. The patrol, lift operators, instructors, food service, rental shop--everyone I met was incredibly nice and helpful.

I thought the mountain was great fun, the snow and coverage was terrific, and the fast lifts let us ski lots of runs. You have wonderful teaching terrain, in my opinion. Lots of variety and the terrain gardens were much appreciated.

Please tell the nice receptionist in the rental shop to try the blades, she'll have a ball. In fact, a number of skiers asked about lessons on the Blades and we recommended they stop in at the ski school to inquire. Some were older people--they were really intrigued by it.

Thanks for everything! I had a terrific time at Brighton.

I highly recommend visiting this mountain.

Bob and I had an opportunity to ski with a few of the Brighton instructors the morning after the academy. I found them to be quite good skiers, but more than that--they were open, friendly learners, and lots of fun to ski with.\

Congrats Mary and Carolyn on running such a good school. And thanks for your kindness to our groups throughout the week.

EpicSki Academy ROCKS! Brighton ROCKS! If my legs could take it, I'd be in the EpicSki Academy at Brighton all year long. What a great ski resort! Lot's of variety, really fortunate snow comditons, and those "secret stashes" that "Wear the fox hat?" finds - and speaking of Fox, he's a terrific guy whose "pure Irish blood" [his own words] gives him apparently limitless energy.

By the way, watching nolo and Bob Barnes ski is an epiphany - you really have to see it to believe it. nolo was our group leader. Bob Barnes joined our group for a day. These are great instructors - the greatest. How on earth could we expect to ski and party with, and learn from, the royalty of ski instructors were it not for the EpicSki Academy? This has been one of the most special experiences of my life.

Hello Mary! Welcome to EpicSki!

Thanks so much for the hospitality you and your great resort showed us at the EpicSki Academy. And thanks for having the best snow in Utah, too!

As you can see, we all thoroughly enjoyed skiing at Brighton.

Best regards,
Bob Barnes

P.S. After writing the above, on my eighth and last day of skiing in Utah this trip, we went back to Brighton, which by that time had a fresh coat of the lightest, airiest powder. I love that place and will go back, I hope with my son.
