Why try it » Some of the best skiing Brighton has to offer

The ride » Milly Express is on the far side of the parking lot from the rest of Brighton Resort’s base facilities, but it’s an easy stroll from your car since most people park closer to the Majestic-Crest-Great Western chairs. From there it’s a quick ride to the upper knoll beneath 10,452-foot Mt. Millicent, the lift’s namesake. The current lift was installed in 2008 at a cost of $4.2 million.

Runs to try

Backbone » Good for better beginners and intermediates, it takes skiers and boards over some rolls and pitches before settling into the gentle undulations of Main Street.

Chute 2 » It’s a short shot just off of Backbone, but it can be a fun shot when winds fill it deep on powder days.

Lone Pine » A double black diamond run forces riders to pick their way through cliff bands just where the slope gets steepest.
