Our Mission

The Brighton Ski Team is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing an opportunity for young skiers to develop competitive skills and short- and long-term athletic and competition goals; while having fun and developing positive attitudes towards competition and the necessary work that goes into becoming a serious athlete and competitor


Throughout the ski season, team members are continually challenged through numerous opportunities to compete in a variety of venues. Each race affords competitors the ability to demonstrate the skills that they will have learned throughout the season.

Team Competition

The Brighton Ski Team is composed of young skiers ranging in age from 6 to 18 years of age; with each team learning the basics of racing technique. Competitors are encourage to compete in races in order to do their personal best and get the experience on a race course that is necessary to move on to the next level of racing ability.

Our Coaches

The coaches are responsible for developing and motivating our athletes to bring our their best. They are all experienced coaches and teachers, and love sharing their racing and skiing experience with our young racers.

Our Mountain

Brighton Ski Resort is located at the end of Big Cottonwood Canyon Road, and Brighton Ski Team calls this beautiful resort “home”. The Brighton Ski Team is a ski racing team. Since 1994, young athletes have trained at Brighton up to four days a week with their coaches, and many team members come up in their free time to enjoy the mountain and a day of free-skiing.
