Description

This is the main uphill route at Brighton resort, and it's typically open during operating hours.

This allows all-day access to inbounds runs as well as backcountry terrain.

Skin up this route to ski from the Crest Express lift, or to exit the resort through the backcountry gate.

Pioneer Peak, Sunset Peak, and Catherine Pass are some popular backcountry zones you can reach from there. The uphill route uses M&M trail to Lost Maid trail, then Wren Hollow and Pacific Highway to the top.

According to the resort's website, parking for uphill access is allowed only at the Brighton Store, which is where the route mapped here begins.

Note also that all uphill travel is subject to closure by ski patrol based on daily conditions.

At the base area, a red/yellow/green light indicates status for the day.

You can also check the resort's [conditions page](https://brightonresort.com/conditions) for status and more information on the uphill policy.
