My first time at brighton today. The backcountry was awesome. They were super cheap and polite, But there parks sucked. So far the only good parks i've hit up out in Utah was park city. oh yeah and snow basin.
BTW the park pass idea is a load of crap. gaper only pay 15$ then there in.
Brighton's parks are usually pretty fun. But it's been pretty obvious the last week or so that their park crew is over it for the season. There's been a pretty noticeable lack of maintenance. It's sad kinda, since the end of the season is the best time to ride park.
Thank you for your feedback, your complaint has been filed into the Newschoolers database under the category of "People who suck and don't like brighton". It will never be addressed and nothing will ever be done about it.
The kid is not as far off as your internet persona wants to make people believe. The jump from the entry level park to Candyland is huge. And from Candyland to the Majestic park is also pretty big. Brighton is definitely lacking progression through their park. They have maybe 1 feature that I would consider a stepping stone for urban-on features (the down box on the left hand side of Candyland). Otherwise, there's no other "easy" urban features to get your confidence up.
I am both a snowboarder and skier, it's pretty obvious that the parks are very biased towards snowboarders. Obviously, both can ride the park, but many of the features are built towards snowboarders. Which makes sense, because their entire park crew is snowboarders, and all their marketing it towards snowboarders as well.
As for the maintenance, is really obvious that it has gone down hill in the last few days. The kicker for the first milly tube is basically gone. As well as the little wave box after the DFD milly tube, and the trap box after that. The lower park as well, with large bomb holes forming after most of the down rails.
As someone who's worked terrain parks for 8+ years, I know how much the spring sucks. You're pretty much over it, tired of working, and it's the time of the year that requires the most attention. It's just too bad that their manager can't kick them in the ass, and have the rake more than once a day now that everything is melting.

I am not informed on this year's status of brighton seeing I went there most recently last winter in February. But all I could say it was a great fun experience. You make good points on the progression it lacks though so +K.

no, their park is not considered easy. BUT when i had a season pass there back in middle school, it was my first season ever riding park. By having a sort of difficult park, it required one to sack up and try stuff, which is how i progressed.
Brighton's park is a blast. No, they've never had fantastic jumps, but the rails and jibs are some of the best in utah
haha no pipe this year. I would say that the flat and up milly tubes are great progression hits and arent really hard at all. Yeah it is a pretty high level park, but people bitching about how it is set up for boarders need to stop, because really it makes it fun as shit if you just sack up
Sorry Brighton sets up their rails like real urban features. Can't blame park crew for setting up a skate style park when most of the crew skates. Their park is always fun and challenging. Oops, I meant shiity...?
april isn't exactly the time where you can expect park features to be in mint condition. i actually love brighton, their rails are better than pc's imo. jumps could be better but they could be a lot worse too
Hey guys! Sorry I haven't been on for so long, been really busy jerking off to Traveling Circus edits and trying to decide between an XXL pair of pink, orange and green Saga pants or a XXXL pair of camo Orage pants with suspenders included!!! Orage is just running so hesh now I would need to get the XXXL.
Haha but in all seriousness guys I'm really glad to hear that you all are continuing to be terrible at hitting any real features, and are realizing more and more that the 10 foot kickers onto every rail over at PC are the true way to go. Congratulations! Now you can take you, your crew, and all your Soggy outerwear out of our super lame "skate influenced" park and over to somewhere a little more jong-friendly. I mean, any feature that is so difficult that it actually requires you to grow a pair of balls AND pop onto it- that can't be a feature worth hitting, am I right?
Glad you all are finally starting to see things my way.
i hate when skiers use their inability to pop as an excuse to call things set up for snowboarders. brightons rails are great. fun and challenging and always something new and different. and never sticky like pc's
I dont do it everyday but im better at it than you
I hate flat and up rails that have urban on. I will still hit them, but they are much more fun when they are just gap on.
Every down feature should always be urban on.
my 2 cents.
