“The terrain at Brighton is just so insane. Hike off the top of Milly, you’ve got the Milly Bowl, the chute at the top, and all the cliff jumps, all the natural terrain there–we were in heaven… It evolved so quick. You think about it, from the mid-80s to the early 90s, how quick the sport evolved. Man, Brighton was right in there as a destination spot that everyone wanted to go.” — Andy Brewer
