Of the four Ski City resorts, Solitude's name is a true description. Even on the busiest holiday ski days, there's a dearth of lines at the lifts and wonderful pockets of, yes, solitude, to be found all over this quirky hill. It’s inexplicable how much elbow room there is to be had at Solitude—located a mere 6 miles up Big Cottonwood Canyon, above a metropolitan area of 2 million people, with three of the nation's best resorts just next door.

The runs at Solitude are busiest around the base but, again, busy is relative. We’ve never waited more than five minutes in a lift line. Up top, things thin out even more, and if you make the trek back into Honeycomb Canyon, you’ll feel like a regular Sir Edmund Hillary. Although chances are, on a powder day, you won’t be entirely alone. In fact, on a powder day you can attribute short lines to the base to the lure of Honeycomb Canyon’s tree runs and powder stashes, which remain in play for days, and one of the longest vertical runs in Utah: Wood Lawn to Honeycomb Return.

And despite the steeps and big bowl skiing back in Honeycomb Canyon, (there’s a double-black run called “Here Be Dragons,” just sayin’) Solitude is friendly to beginners. Most of its front 40 is made up of beginner and intermediate terrain, which draws families with young learners and out-of-towners still getting their legs under them before taking on the more challenging slopes at Snowbird and Alta in Little Cottonwood Canyon.

Bottom line: Solitude is an openly kept secret that rewards skiers of every level with a unique experience of quiet and small crowds.


From warm-up runs to powder laps to après fun, here's a step-by-step guide to having the perfect family ski vacation at Solitude.
