For almost six decades, it’s been one of the biggest mysteries in Livingston County: What’s REALLY underneath Mt. Brighton?
The various owners of the ski resort in Genoa Township have always maintained that it’s nothing but good, old dirt, but others who were around when the ski hill opened have claimed that it’s either built on a landfill or thousands of old tires.
So, what’s the REAL story?
We found the answer in this story in the Jan. 31, 1962, article in the Livingston County Press – the first mention we could find in the newspaper of Mt. Brighton’s existence.
We’ve got the dirt, and the truth is … it’s dirt.
So there you have it. You’ve not skiing on tires and garbage. It’s all just dirt.
