Solitude is just like it sounds… secluded, serene, and typically blanketed in soft plentiful powder snow. Solitude’s 1,200 acres, located in Big Cottonwood Canyon just before Brighton, is great for families given the well planned pedestrian skiers village – with a European architectural flair. You can rent a convenient condo and walk to the slopes from Club Solitude, or stay in the Inn at Solitude – many rooms offer a deck and view of the slopes. Deer Valley now owns Solitude, so we expect great service improvements at Solitude with Deer Valley's signature skier service implemented at this quieter ski resort.
Skiers and snowboarders will find express quads serving most of the 77 runs at Solitude, something for everyone. What you won’t find are lift lines or crowded lodges at Moonbeam or Mining Camp. There are plenty of groomers and wide boulevard trails like Main Street, Alta Bird and Sunshine Bowl, plus patrol gated chutes and glades in Honeycomb Canyon which is 400 acres of backcountry to explore off the 10,035-foot summit now serviced by a new Summit Quad.

dinner of steak and ribs, grab a shuttle to the Silver Fork restaurant down
