    About Solitude, Utah

    Utah’s Big Cottonwood Canyon often sees some of the best snow of Salt Lake City ski resorts and Solitude’s annual 500 inches of snowfall is no exception. If fresh, deep snow is high on your ski vacation laundry list, Solitude should certainly be a top-choice. Solitude ski resort shares access with Brighton ski resort, via the Sol-Bright ticket. Solitude’s Big Cottonwood Canyon also serves as a destination for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and backcountry adventures. In fact, Solitude ski resort has a dedicated Nordic trail system on looker’s left of the resort.

    Solitude, unlike Alta, Snowbird, and Park City sees fewer guests, making it a great place to beat the crowds—and find fresh powder days after the storm—on your Salt Lake City ski vacation. Plus, Solitude ski resort is conveniently located less than a half hour from Salt Lake City, and just 14 miles up Big Cottonwood Canyon, making it an easy decision if convenience is high on your list.

    Ski Solitude

    Although it’s best known for its 1,200-acre expert skiers paradise, Honeycomb Canyon, intermediates are well served with tons of frontside tree runs and cruising boulevards, and access to the top of the mountain via Summit Express chairlift. Advanced intermediates can enjoy Honeycomb Canyon’s Honey Trail, which is the resort’s longest descent at three and a half miles. Beginners have plenty of terrain options off three Solitude ski resort chairlifts: Sunrise, Moonbeam Express and Link.

    Beautiful resort, but not for the first time skiier.

    Beautiful resort. Very peaceful. People were very friendly. But this isn't the place for the beginning skier. There are no true beginner green runs -- you go from bunny slope to green with sections of blue. So if you are a beginner, go somewhere else unless you are confident on harder green runs.

    Family trip to Solitude

    Powderhorn lodge was quite nice and convenient to the village and slopes. The mountain has a variety of terrain for all levels but only about 1200 acres so limited compared to some. It is great to never have to wait in a lift line, however, even on Saturday. The village is very quiet with only a few eating options. St. Barnards is fantastic, but a bit pricey. I would highly recommend eating at least one dinner there. For lunch I recommend the Homalayan dishes at the Roundhouse or the shrimp tacos at Last Chance.

    Loved Solitude. Perfect for four day stay. Great for more if true skiers diversify and visit area resorts. Uncrowded slopes especially mid week were a treat for Eastern skiers. Loved ungroomed runs from Summit chair and also Black Forest. Run outs tend to be long but getting there is worth the run out. Lift operators friendly, efficient and fun. Loved St Bernard's. Happened to be there on Judd's Hill wine pairing night. Lucky us! Great evening. Loved the wines, Judd Finkelstein and the food right down to the last bite of the pot de creme. Also loved the price point for lift tickets and the ticket agent there who worked with us to get great deal on the SolBright tickets.

    Spring Break in Utah

    We stayed at Solitude for the convenience, accessibility, and family friendly Village, but loved the skiing even more. A lot more expert terrain than expected, great snow conditions, and no lift lines or crowds. We also skied Alta and Snowbird, but stayed at Solitude for our best powder day, about 10 inches. Starting on Powderhorn 2 lift, then moving up to the Summit chair and Honeycomb Canyon, we skied fresh tracks on black runs all day. A real treat during a Spring Break week. I also had the privilege of closing a bar on St Patrick's Day with my oldest son. Last call was at 9:00 PM! If you are looking for nightlife in Utah, stick with Park City. I would not recommend Solitude for singles of any age, unless they like "solitude" in the evenings.

    We loved Solitude!

    The slopes: Being an intermediate skier we stuck to the intermediate runs and found them fun and challenging. Since our child is a beginner skier we also skied on the beginner runs and found them fun and challenging for that level too. We liked the fact that many of the runs were wide. Although we did not attempt the diamonds, from the looks they seem like an expert skier would have plenty to choose from. The village: There are two bases. One bigger base where there is an Inn and condos. There are two excellent restaurants there too--Kimmi's and St. Bernards. There is a bar for adults only and then a pizza restaurant that is much more casual than the restaurants. Also there is an outside ice skating area that is fun to play around on after a day of skiing. You can rent the skates right nearby the skating area. They also have a fire going there--this seems to be mainly on weekends. The other base has the ski school, the restaurant/ cafeteria for lunch for the skiers. We found everyone to be helpful and friendly. It felt more like a community than many of the bigger resorts. We were told that it is owned by a family that lives in the village. Maybe due to that and the restrictions placed on development in this area has allowed this resort to have a charm that you can't get often.
