Stay Away!

Jay03/10/2018
I want this place all to myself! OK, the lifts are a little slow and clunky, but you’ll be skiing right on to them, so who cares? Alta is a bettter mountain, but there are some really good lines here and you don’t have to traverse as much to get to them. Utah powder without having it skied out by noon, even with snowboards, that’s my kind of place.

Uncrowded Pow

John31/01/2018
I have visited Solitude for a week in both Jan 2017 and Jan 2018. In each case, we have scored copious amounts of dry, light snow.

If it snows and you are staying in the village (and are not a ski sloth), get in line for the Apex at 8:30. Jump on the Apex lift right at 9 and go warp speed down to the Powderhorn lift. At the top, you can choose to either crank freshies in the bowl next to the Powderhorn or, if it's open, jump through the gate and get the Milk Run steeps. (The best thing about this plan is that the day skiers park at Moonbeam and they can't get to the Apex or Powderhorn right off the bat.)

Once the summit opens, head for Headwall forest and plunder that repeatedly. If it's snowing most likely Honeycomb won't open until they can do Avi mitigation. Once Honeycomb opens, suck it up, get ready to side-step, and hit the high traverse. Keep going past the Pinnacle rock (1/4 mile or so of traversing)and revel in the pow out near the Boundry Chutes. The other side of Honeycomb (Black Forest, Navarone, Here Be Dragons, etc.)offers up some seriously great skiing as well. Seems like a cliché, but Honeycomb always seems to offer up pow several days after a storm.

For a change, hike up the in-bounds Evergreen peak and have a blast with the steep, sometimes technical terrain on the Sol-Bright side.

As for lodging, we stay at Eagle Springs East (two bedroom and we put people on the couch). We buy groceries in SLC prior to heading up Canyon. Saves some dough over eating out.

The name describes it perfectly. Solitude. 9 times out of ten I rode the chair on my own, that's how few people were there even with good conditions. This place is peaceful and serene with amazing trails. The people were genuine, both the people working there and people I met on the slopes. My favorite resort in Salt Lake

Great resort. Definitely for more experienced riders. I am an intermediate boarder and there are some serious vertical slopes at this place. When I went it was blowing like 30mph and was almost blizzard status. Slopes are great, accommodations are great. Price is good.

Very nice!

We did a half day here the morning of our return flight to DC. Probably the 3rd best out of Brighton, Snowbird, and Park City. Pretty good snow, fairly challenging (blacks were equivalent to double blacks on the East Coast), plenty of off-piste jumps and alpine runs, and cliffs in a few spots. One of the blacks was just about the steepest run I've seen...short...but very steep.

Had a great time here, and of all the swag shops, the one here had some amazing crap to buy. I got a really sweet hoodie (on sale!) that I proudly wear to show my love for this place.

Good size, not huge, you can cover the mountain in a day.

A Powder Destination

Conner Callahan05/03/2015
I've had nothing but good experiences at Solitude. Even a week after a storm, runs like Headwall and Honeycomb retain snow and powder, which may be longer than all the other Cottonwood Resorts combined. The runs off the backside of Powderhorn are incredible on a powder day.

Solitude great stay

Solitude great stay

My family just had a weeks stay at this Gem of a resort. Our Condo in The Eagle Springs East building was ideal for the 3 of us. While the mountain was a little light on for snow in the early stages of the 2014/2015 season we were well catered for, my daughter had a great time in ski school, my wife loved the green and blue runs at the bottom of the hill and I could get out and hit the more advanced terrain off powder horn lift and hit the groomers when I had enough bumps and off piste.

Unfortunately the sol bright connection was shut and the back country was also closed due to a lack of snow, my last 2 days saw 9 inches of snow fall and the day I left another 10-20 was forecast hard to leave.

Night life is non-existent but I am ok with that being on a family holiday and the restaurants and eateries were good, can recommend St.Bernards at the Solitude Inn.

Our overall feeling was that we would be back for another visit as we liked the quiet laid back feel.

First visit to Utah!

We stayed @ Eagle Springs West and the condo was updated and very nice. We hardly saw or heard anybody in the building except for when we hit the hot tub in the evening. Everyone was super friendly and seem to be either condo owners or repeat visitors.

The slopes were great and absolutely NO WAITING in the lift lines. Go up the Summit chair lift to the top of Honeycomb Canyon for an amazing view! We only skied/boarded half of the mountain and were never bored. Hoping to be back to see the other half very soon.
