Solitude Mountain Resort, Utah
Classic 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 potential.
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 country 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 runs.
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!
We give Solitude two enthusiastic thumbs up!

Salt Lake City’s best kept secret 500 inches of dry powder snow recently purchased by deer Valley resort deer Valley resort has sold itself this year so the quality deer Valley management now hangs out at Solitude and has made many improvements in the last few years
As the name says, Solitude is what you will experience at this Resort. The powder from big dumps sticks around for days in the woods and chutes on the resort's back side. While Alta and Snowbird get all the press about the toughest terrain, there are certainly some runs here that will make you do a double take before dropping in. Also fantastic side/back country.
Solitude truly lives up to its name, with so many runs and never a wait in the lift lines. And the new high speed summit lift gets you to the action even quicker.
Also enjoyed the runs not too crowded, great snow. but more diffcult to get to when snows very heavy.
The terrain is varied and challenging. The accomadations and food are great. Price is right and the people are friendly and helpful. Family oriented, yet singles or couples can have a blast.
Solitude is the gem of the Wasatch. Great snow, terrain, and no lift lines. Honeycomb Canyon is like having lift served backcountry. The frontside caters to beginners to advanced riders and skiers. The mid mountain lodge is comfy and has some of the best Himalayan food in Utah. Hit the village for pizza and apres beverages. If your gonna pick resorts to visit in Utah make sure Solitude is on your list!
While it's one of the smaller Wasatch Mountain resorts, Solitude offers deep powder intermediate runs with minimal crowds. The lodging and food are kept at high standard for reasonable price. A great value!
easy to get too, nonstop flight available from ft. lauderdale, can ski the same day arrive. Incredible snow & NO LIFT lines. We love the ski-in ski-out and wonderful people. Great ski/snowboard school too.
