The Brighton Chalet is centered in the heart of Utah's Brighton Ski Resort area where, at an elevation of 8,755 Feet, we have a higher base elevation than any other Utah ski area! And with an average snowfall of over 500 inches per year, it's no wonder why we open our doors and ski runs first each season! We are located in Brighton, Utah, just 19 miles east of Salt Lake City at the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon. During the summertime, Brighton is peaceful and serene, but not lacking adventurous activities! You can cast your fishing line into the nearby Silver Lake, which is constantly filled with trout. Not into fishing? You can leisurely wander around the lake enjoying the beautiful views of nature on the environment-protecting boardwalk. These activities are an easy 5-minute walk from our chalets. For those in search of a more difficult hike, there are four beautiful mountain lakes that constantly draw the attention of the ambitious hiker. The popular Guardsman's Pass mountain biking trails bring spectacular views and perfect terrain. Photographers have a heyday at Brighton because of the many amazing images to capture which include fields of the famous Brighton wildflowers. The views captivate tourists as well, who are making their way to Brighton Chalets.

Skiers and snowboarders enjoy an easy 1-minute walk to the Brighton Ski Resort lifts to experience the lighter-than-air snow! Positioned just across the street from Brighton Resort's Milly Express, Our Brighton Chalets provide easy access to the mountain resort! Thanks to the over 500 inches of powder each winter, Brighton's famous “Highest Base Elevation of 8,577 Ft.” is the best wintertime skiing in the area. No one gets more snow than we do! With the abundance of snow located right in our backyard, wintertime activities include skiing and snowboarding at Brighton Resort, cross-country skiing at Solitude's Nordic Center, and snowmobiling over Guardsman's Pass, to mention the more vigorous activities. Everyone, even the seasoned locals, is awestruck by the pristine beauty of Brighton's winter wonderland, the epitome of the “Greatest Snow on Earth.”

We feature individual private chalets of all sizes for guests who want something more unique than the usual hotels or condos. Our cabins come in all sizes, from luxury bridal suites for honeymooners to Manor Chalets with a 1,500 sq. ft. grand room, which we built for ski clubs, family reunions, seminars, and meetings of all types. All of our units include fully furnished kitchens, TVs, DVD players, free high-speed Internet, fireplaces, and plenty of jetted tubs! We are located across the street from the Brighton Resort's Milly Express lift and the LDS Church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints).

    Cozy stay up in the mountain

    Beautiful home right next to Brighton Resort. The furnishings were all new and just wonderful. The bedroom had a fireplace and the bed was so comfortable. Just a great getaway. I hope to return soon!

    Old building, new furnishings

    3/5 Stayed Sep 27, 2021
    Submitted Oct 2, 2021

    Unfortunately, I can't recommend staying here. Although the furnishings, appliances and décor are nice and new, the building itself is old and has terrible construction. The walls and floors/ceilings sound like they are made of plywood. This is a 3 level building with multiple units. You will hear every footstep and movement from the people above you. It's sort of a lipstick on a pig situation. It was one of the most annoying vacation stays we've ever had. We had multiple things not work in the unit and the owners (staying on-site above us) were accommodating to get them fixed. There was scheduled construction activity above us which was not mentioned during booking. There were workers walking by and setting up ladders in front of windows and drilling above us for 2 days. We were offered an apology. The wifi is pretty much non-existent, especially in the mornings. We would occasionally get a little here and there but we had to rely on a tether to get anything done (there is one bar of Verizon LTE). This was brought to management's attention twice and nothing was done to remedy. There is no oven in this unit. Just an electric cooktop and microwave. The listing says the jacuzzi is shared. It is not, it belongs to the largest unit on the top.

    Family photos and perfect hiking homebase

    We came for our family photos, which were perfect with the Fall leaves in the background. The hiking around Silver Lake is super kid-friendly, and it's nice being so close to the property for the walk home. My husband had zoom calls for work. The wi-fi was very fast and reliable. We had everything we needed for cooking and the kitchen was very-well stocked. This was a perfect location for our stay.

    Mountain Getaway

    Had not been back to Salt Lake City in over 30 years. Wanted to stay in the mountains and chose Brighton since we have skied there in the past. Loved the property. Exactly the right size for us! Communications were excellent which made all of the arrangements very easy. Would definitely come back!
