boutique resort with a convenient luxury ski village just steps from the lifts,
that's what you find at Solitude Mountain Resort. And as the name implies, you won't find a lot
of skiers - you will discover fabulous un-crowded big mountain skiing to offset
the "small" mountain resort feel at the base.
Deer Valley has purchased Solitude, and has
replaced the Summit Quad with an Express lift, accessing the sweet snowy terrain
in Honeycomb Canyon. There will be more Deer Valley touches to come, like
upgrading the lodging and food service to this lesser known ski resort with big powder and huge
Solitude features high speed quads with awesome cruisers and a great beginner
area on the lower mountain. Solitude's upper mountain offers corduroy cruisers,
some super steep expert areas and the bonus of
back county skiing with no hiking
in the stunning Honeycomb Canyon's 400 acres. The lack of crowds on a fresh snow day at
Solitude equals more powder for you. Solitude abuts Brighton Resort, so you can
ski both resorts in Big Cottonwood Canyon via the Sol-Bright trail, but Solitudes 1,200 acres is
plentiful. Eventually, with the Utah Interconnect, also called ONE Wasatch you
will be able to ski from Deer Valley, Park City, Canyons, Alta, Snowbird,
Solitude, and Brighton - 18,000 ski able acres with 100 lifts and over 750 ski
Solitude provides skiers and riders with high alpine adventure and a quality
compact luxury slope-side village, designed by Intrawest, with all of the amenities at day's end.
The Inn at Solitude is closest to the lifts, with its own outdoor heated pool
and St Bernard's Restaurant. Club Solitude and Eagle Spring offer quiet
condominium style lodging. There's no frenzy here, just friendliness and a
little elbow room. It may be peaceful and less popular than other Utah ski
resorts, but Solitude sure packs punch!
