Mt. Brighton – Know Before You Go!

December 3, 2019 | Story by: Amelia Ritter

Winter is upon us and Mt. Brighton is ready to be your hub for epic adventures! We spoke to Heidi Swartzloff, Marketing Manager at Mt. Brighton, about what you need to know before you hit the slopes!


What is your favorite part about being an attraction in the Brighton-Howell Area?
The Brighton-Howell community is one that loves to try new things, go outdoors and embrace the elements. This is why giving community members the chance to ski and snowboard locally is our favorite part of being an attraction in the area. This is a community that’s focused on family and we are proud to offer an activity that all ages can enjoy year after year.

What is the most recognizable thing about Mt. Brighton?
Besides being one of the highest elevation points in Livingston County at 1,330 ft., one of the most recognizable parts of Mt. Brighton is the snowmaking capabilities that the resort possesses. During the winter months, even when the surrounding community doesn’t have snow on the ground, Mt. Brighton is able to make snow and have white peaks all winter long. You can learn more about Mt. Brighton’s snowmaking HERE.
