MT. BRIGHTON, MICH. – Aug. 18, 2015 – As summer draws to a close, Mt. Brighton is looking forward to the coming ski season by offering the lowest guaranteed prices on 2015-16 season passes through Monday, Sept. 7.  Mt. Brighton offers a variety of pass options to fit the needs of all snow enthusiasts.
 
For those looking to ski or ride locally as well as hit the slopes out west, the Epic Local Pass offers unlimited, unrestricted skiing or riding at Mt. Brighton, as well as Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin in Colorado; with limited restrictions at Park City in Utah and Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood at Lake Tahoe. It also includes a total of 10 days at Vail and Beaver Creek in Colorado with holiday restrictions.
 
“Our pass holders benefit from the best of both worlds,” said Taylor Ogilvie, general manager at Mt. Brighton.  “Mt. Brighton’s recent revitalization provides guests with a superior local ski experience, and with access to eight world-class western resorts, the pass offers unprecedented access to incredible winter vacations in Colorado, Utah and Lake Tahoe.  Mt. Brighton’s skiers can truly go local and go west.” 

“I know that having access to multiple high-quality resorts included with my Mt. Brighton pass has made those resorts much more accessible for me,” said Jim Needham, season pass holder at Mt. Brighton.  “In addition to skiing at Mt. Brighton, last year I was able to visit Afton Alps, Keystone, Breckenridge, Vail, Beaver Creek, Heavenly and Northstar.” 

Access also includes Park City, currently undergoing a $50-million transformation which will complete a number of critical upgrades to the infrastructure and feature a new gondola linking it to Canyons Resort. The project is one of the most ambitious and impactful capital programs in U.S. ski industry history and will create the largest ski resort in the United States with over 7,300 acres of skiable terrain.
 
For those looking to maximize their time on the snow locally, there are the Mt. Brighton Pass and the Mt. Brighton Family Pass providing unlimited access to Mt. Brighton with no restrictions. Families of four or more save up to 20 percent when purchasing the Family Pass.  All kids’ passes (ages five to 12) are automatically Epic Local Passes and are a step closer to a visit out west.  For parents with the Mt. Brighton adult pass, it is as simple and convenient as upgrading to the Epic Local Pass for less than the price of a day ticket to Vail.
