Bob, add avalanche gear and knowledge of how to use it, as will as topomaps and how to use them, add couple of days to acclimate to the alitude prior to the tour. You are back country out there.

Of course you can get reservations for a guided interconnect ski day, if that's your thingy.

your picture shows nothing. Like I said never skied brighton one day on a weekend as I work weekend all the time.

 

here the bird with 3 feet of powder and a pitch steep enough to not get stopped. Looks crowded doesnt it?

tylrwnzl if you got novice glade skiers in your group, Brighton is a great place. Yeah it's flat at the bottom, snowboarders go there but the trees off the Snake Creek Express are great fun there are neat little tree shots stashed all over if you look around and eye don't remember seeing too many boards in there. I like the umm, spirit at Brighton. If you don't like being around people having fun or need to ski fall/die terrains all the time then maybe Brighton not for you but i think try it you'll like it.

Snowbird is the steepest, deepest and most vertical in the area. Snowbasin is an almost snowbird with less crowds,less snow, less tracks and more flatter terrain.  Then Alta and Solitude are close behind.

 

Brighton is awesome for people who have the skills to tour but other than that meh its just average with tons of boarders.

 

As usual, you nailed it exactly. However, quit telling everyone about DV.   I make the drive over there about 5 times a season for a change from the Bird. Best tree skiing there is and there are usually stashes to be found off the groomers. Problems is it is getting discovered by locals.
