Ski With An Arborist

Written by

Brighton Resort will be offering free tree tours with our TreeUtah Arborist, Ian Peisner, every 2nd Thursday of each month at 1 pm. Dedicated to outdoor education about the history and future of our forests. During the tour we will investigate the native species that create our favorite tree runs and learn about how these beloved trees form essential habitats.

The trees at Brighton resort provide shelter for numerous local animals, shade from the sun, and a carbon sink for some of the surrounding emissions. Much of the property is considered a part of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest. Come learn about the Wasatch trees and plants that make up our mountain ecosystem, engage in discussion on the past and future of this landscape.  Also, learn about how you can help in TreeUtah and Brighton’s efforts to preserve our amazing forest! 

These tours will meet at the bottom of Snake Creek Chair Lift 15 minutes prior to the start time.  Tours are free to passholders, ticket holders, and go card holders and will last about an hour. Space is limited. Intermediate skiing/riding ability required. 

Masks are MANDATORY for participation in the tour. Please wear a CDC-recommended face mask over your nose and mouth at all times. It will be requested that members of the tour ride the chairlift only with members of their own party per COVID-19 guidelines.
