General Information:

Trivia Item: I was watching a movie called "Aspen Extreme" (1993) today, it is about 2 misfits from Detroit who move to Aspen to make a name for themselves. There is about 10 minutes of footage from Mt. Brighton in the beginning of the film. See screenshots below.

Skiers and riders from Detroit, Ann Arbor, Lansing and Northwest Ohio can easily access 25 trails and five lifts covering 130 acres. Having converted thousands of first-timers into lifelong skiers and riders, and now with the opportunity to take that passion to Vail Resorts’ iconic western mountains, Mt.
