BRIGHTON, Utah — Four of Utah's ski resorts will open to the public this week, with one already open to season pass holders.

Brighton Resort and Solitude Mountain Resort, both located in Big Cottonwood Canyon, will begin their seasons on Tuesday, but with only certain chairlifts open.

At Brighton, Majestic and Explorer lifts opened Monday for those who have season passes to the resort. The same two will be running again Tuesday on the official opening day.

Moonbeam and Link lifts will be open to begin the season at Solitude.

Many of Utah's skiing and snowboarding resorts have had to delay their opening dates this year due to a lack of snow.
