Solitude was once largely a local's day ski area but has now grown into a prominent Utah ski and snowboard destination, featuring a cozy village, lodging, and an abundance of activities.

A Hidden Gem

Located just 40 minutes from Salt Lake City International Airport, it is the epitome of a hidden gem among the myriad of immense and chic resorts in the area. The area offers visitors a chance to reconnect with nature, experience solitary runs, and most importantly, escape the stress and hustle of daily life and reenergize amidst some of the most striking scenery in the country.

Guests are delighted to discover over 1,200 acres of world-class riding terrain, meticulously groomed runs, and three bowls including the pristine Honeycomb Canyon, as well as a family-friendly terrain park. Solitude has also made a vast amount of improvements in order to better suit the needs of guests. The Moonbeam Day Lodge, is a facility designed specifically to address the needs of day visitors. It features a wonderful lounging area with a large fireplace, restaurants, bar, locker facilities, and rental shop. Along with the new buildings, the resort has replaced several of its more outdated lifts with some fantastic new quads that gets visitors up the mountain more efficiently. They also have a great smart card lift ticket system, which automatically scans the lift ticket and reduces the wait on already minimal lines. The lodges and village offer a host of additional amenities including, restaurants, shopping, and full-service retail and repair ski and snowboard shops. Read more about the Ski Experience here.

For fun and adventure, check out Back Tracks Guided Backcountry Tours where seasoned ski patrollers take guests deep into the famous Utah backcountry. They will provide all the gear, including a tremendous lunch. Solitude has a family-friendly terrain park that invites all to play—most features are snow-based (no steel structures) and they are a manageable size for all riders. The park is located in gentle terrain and is accessible from several lifts. Nordic skiing and snowshoeing are also available in the Village and the area has more than 10 miles of superbly groomed trails set for both classic and skating styles of Nordic skiing and snowshoeing. Rentals, lessons, and light snacks are also available.

Off the Slopes

For lodging, discover the true meaning of ski-in / ski-out service, by reaching the chairlift in just a few steps from your room. Nestled at the base of the mountain, The Inn offers deluxe rooms, kitchenettes, and suites. Guests will enjoy the Inn's private pool, Essentials Spa, and on-site restaurant, St. Bernard's. There is also accommodation at the Village’s condominiums, which are the perfect combination of convenience, mountain luxury, and natural beauty—each marvelously furnished with the finest and most modern amenities. They offer 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom units (many with den) that come fully equipped with spacious living room, kitchen, and fireplace. It should be noted that Solitude excels at providing exactly that—Solitude. There are a few pubs to enjoy, but the resort intentionally avoids the raucous nightlife found at other Utah ski resorts.

Getting Here

Just a 45-minute drive away! From the airport, follow signs to I-80 east, and take the I-215 south exit. Follow I-215 for about 15 miles, then take exit 6, for UT-190, follow signs for UT-190 E/6200 S/Big Cottonwood Road. Follow Big Cottonwood Road and signs for the resort. You see it soon!
