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. We also offer a Fun Park, as well as a Nordic Center. 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. « less

A jewel in the mountains. The name tells it all. Solitude is a beautiful small village in the Big cottonwood canyon. A 30"-40" drive from SLC international airport. As you start your ascend into the canyon you realized the power and beauty of nature, and the true meaning of geological time. Whether you visit in the winter, spring, summer, or... More

Although the mountain isn't huge compared to other resorts in the Rockies, the snow was great and my 5 year old daughter had a blast learning to ski - she insisted on going back to ski school every day (5 day package).

It's taken me a while to appreciate Solitude as much as the locals claim they do. I've always been impressed by the lack of crowds for such an easy place to get to, but I thought the reason for that was the lack of terrain and shorter runs. This was the trip that changed my opinion. The runs are in... More

This was my first time skiing at Solitude. The weather was a bit warm but the runs were great. The We skiied on a Monday in early April. There were no crowds and the mountain was groomed to perfection. Will for sure come back next year. We really loved the "solitude" of this place.

I had a weekdays season pass for Solitude this season, and I was disappointed. People were nice, customer service fine... BUT - the actual lifts and terrain, you know, the part you're really there for, just aren't as good as at other Utah areas. You can't get to the summit without riding TWO non-high speed lifts, and to get BACK... More

We have been making an annual ski trip to Utah for about 15 years. We usually ski at Park City, Deer Valley and the Canyons which are all amazing, but this year we decided to test out Solitude and fell in love. It's about an hour from Park City and the drive through Wasatch National Forest is gorgeous. Solitude was... More

My family and I have skied all over the world. I have skied for 70 years. My youngest son was ranked 10th in the world and 2nd in North America in his age group in slalom (to put my comments in context). My daughter had not skied in 15 years, and her two daughters had skied twice before. Solitude accommodated... More

Very close to Brighton in Big Cottonwood Canyon, Solitude Nordic Center is a well kept secret for cross-country skiers. Connected with Solitude Resort via several ski trails, this center is a separate operation in the winter time. It is a popular hiking place in the summer and part of the national forest service. It is rented to Solitude in the... More

My family went to Solitude for nearly a week over New Year's Eve 2013. We had a great time skiing and the condo we rented was just great. There is another ski resort about 5 minutes away, Brighton and a good restaurant down the canyon about 7 minutes away but other than that there isn't much of anything between Solitude... More
