Sasquatch - 2014 Brighton Closing Day

An excited sasquatch at Brighton ski resort’s 2014 season closer.

I’ve attended a few ski resort closing days in the past and they’re always tons of fun. Skiing slush in a T-shirt is cool (as long as you’ve got the right wax on your skis), the silly costumes and vintage ski gear are entertaining, but mostly it’s the party atmosphere and camaraderie with fellow snow sliding junkies that makes it so great. I’ve always taken pictures, too. But I never really had a good place to put them – until now. So here’s a big, fun gallery of Brighton closing day photos – complete with girls in bikini tops, a guy in a dress, and someone puking in the snow.

Bunny Ears Galore - 2014 Brighton Closing Day

When closing day is also Easter Sunday, you can count on seeing tons of bunny ears at the ski resort.

This year, closing day was also Easter Sunday, which happened to fall on April 20th – a.k.a. 4/20. So besides the standard season closer foolishness, there were also lots of bunny ears and marijuana leaves. Since Brighton is in Utah, there wasn’t any obvious pot smoking, as I’m sure there was in Colorado. But people were certainly going out of their way to show off their love for the reefer.

Even though it was a bit chilly to comfortably ski in shorts and T-shirt, my wife Jenni and plenty of others did the right thing and showed some skin for closing day. It wouldn’t be a proper season closer without the three B’s: brats, beer and bikinis.

Ok – it’s not really a bikini. My friend Melissa’s “sexy Hee Haw outfit” description is better. Either way, Jenni is a champ and made a lot of fellas happy by snowboarding in this getup.

Of course, there are always a few who have a little too much fun.

I found this guy puking in the snow at about noon. He said he started at 8:30 AM. Well done, sir!

It’s ok, she’s a pro.

Last but not least, here’s one for the ladies: my brother-in-law Ben, airing it out – in more ways than one. And yes, ladies, he is single.
