i dont believe you would get in trouble since the resort is closed and unless im mistaken it is on BLM land so you can do what you want. Everyone who works at the resort is gone the half pipe is prime to be turned into a variety of booters and jibs/jumps.
what about if we want to take a break and do some hiking and do a little "REAL SKIING ON REAL SNOW"? im not a total JONG having spent 10ish days at Brighton, but got any inside tips on where to hike up for 1kish of vert?
Ask yourself whether the dream of heaven and greatness should be waiting for us in our graves - or whether it should be ours here and now and on this earth.
Brighton is probably the hardest place to get continuous vert but if you take the groomer up on a bootpack and take a right at the unoading of crest lift you will see pioneer peak. It's really accessible and should have a boot pack in it. It is backcountry but a pretty stable area. Stay in the trees and you will be fine. However the snow will likely be baked and not very fun to ski. The adventure alone is worth it though. Good luck!
Talk is cheap because supply always exceeds demand.
