BRIGHTON, Mich. (March 28, 2014) – Thanks to a winter of snow and cold temperatures, along with the state of Michigan’s most technologically-advanced snowmaking and grooming operations, Mt. Brighton announced the resort has the quality snow conditions to continue operations with special spring times and rates, after competing resorts have closed for the season.

“An extended spring skiing and riding season was exactly what we had in mind when we invested in a brand new snowmaking system for Mt. Brighton,” said Mt. Brighton General Manager Taylor Ogilvie. “In recent years it’s been difficult for southeastern Michigan ski areas to extend their season. The fact that we’re currently the only snow sports game in town is just one more proof point for the value we provide to our season pass holders.”

Mt. Brighton’s 2014-15 season pass line-up features a new pass that combines four days locally and four days out West, a new family product, a night pass for college students, and the same ability to ski the revitalized Mt. Brighton as much and as often as desired, as well as Vail Resorts’ eight world-class western resorts. For as little as $49 down, Michigan’s die-hard skiers and riders can lock in the lowest guaranteed prices for Michigan’s best season pass deals before Apr. 13, 2014.

“Our spring conditions are so good, it would be selfish not to share,” added Ogilvie.

As an added bonus to non-pass holders, Mt. Brighton is opening up its trails – for free – to anyone who holds a valid 2013-14 Michigan ski area season pass – the other Detroit area ski hills, which have all closed for the season, included. Also, guests who sign up for the Mt. Brighton Preferred Program can ski for $15 on their first visit, $10 on their second visit while Mt. Brighton remains open this spring.
