Recommendations

One of the few remaining family-run ski resorts, Solitude is also family friendly. As its name implies, Solitude sits apart from Utah's active apres ski scene, making its a perfect choice for people who want to get a good night's sleep. With 62 percent blue terrain, this uncrowded resort is an excellent choice for intermediates.

All ski resorts have chair lifts, but ours take you to new heights. That’s what we mean when we say,” Refined by Nature.” Solitude Mountain Resort is located a short 40-minute drive from the Salt Lake International Airport. With over 1200 acres of skiable terrain, Solitude is one of Utah’s most intimate and inviting winter resorts. Over 500 inches of annual snowfall covers: 65 named trails, three bowls and groomers for every ability level. And don’t forget Honeycomb Canyon. It has some of the most awe inspiring, lift-served terrain in the country. With hardly any lift lines you won’t have to wait to find your Solitude. You’ll be deep in powder before you know it.
