Solitude Mountain Resort presents a beautiful setting in the Big Cotton Canyon of the Wasatch Mountains that annually sees 500 inches of snowfall, painting the perfect picture for ski enthusiasts.
As the name implies, Solitude prides itself on its backountry-feel and is less likely than surrounding resorts to draw overcrowding. Of course, that's not to say that this resort doesn't offer quality. In fact, one reason Solitude rarely seems crowded is that it is one of the first resorts to implement radio-frequency identification into its lift ticket system.
As for the actual skiing, guests will find 65 runs, as well as three bowls that cover over 1,200 acres. The Solitude Snowsports Academy is perfect for beginners or those wanting to brush up on their skills. The extreme adventure can set out on a guided journey through the Utah backcountry with all the gear needed to stay safe and a delicious lunch from Creekside Restaurant. These Back Tracks Guided Backcountry Tours are once-in-a-lifetime experiences!
Comfortable and cozy lodging can also be found at The Inn at Solitude where guests can enjoy luxurious amenities like spacious living rooms, gourmet kitchens and fireplaces. Not to mention, the dining options are endless with two different local pubs featuring handcrafted brews full of flavor and a mongonlian-style Yurt, a pizzeria and creamery and the gourmet European dishes of the Creekside Restaurant.
Whether you'd like to warm-up on a groomed trail or simply take to the untouched wild, all options are possible at Solitude.
