Brighton Hill and Point 10420 Professional Review and Guide

"Brighton Hill to Point 10420 is the closest you can backcountry ski near Brighton Ski Resort without having to ride any chairlifts to get there. The ridge and lower slopes can be a good place to take beginner backcountry skiers and splitboarders who are comfortable with riding in the trees. A low-angle ridge from the Guardsman Pass winter closure leads to the base of Point 10420, where more advanced riding can be found on steep, treed slopes. The ridge is also a safe haven from snowmobiles, which are always buzzing on Guardsman Pass Road but aren’t allowed anywhere else in upper Big Cottonwood Canyon."
