Mountain Resort

SOLITUDE MOUNTAIN RESORT

Open for the 2017/18 season until April 15, 2018 

Find Solitude this winter when you're at Solitude Mountain Resort. Up here it's quiet. You hear the light thrum of the chairlift at your back, a slight breeze wisps by, cold and clear. It's sunny and crystal clear today, and before you drop in, you take a moment to breathe, to hear the quiet. This resort has something to offer skiers and riders of all abilities with an average of 500" of annual snowfall, 1,200 acres of incredible terrain, 77 named runs, three bowls and a Nordic Center. The mountain's layout is a tantalizing buffet of green, blue and black runs.

 

Best Places to Ski at Solitude

Beginners can have a heyday cruising the mountain's lower lifts: baby Link, green-run-laced Moonbeam, and mellow Apex all serve easy, cruising terrain. The mellow Sunrise lift pokes along at the resort's far east end, carrying skiers three at a time to the top of a delightful winding gully that happens to serve as a disc golf course in the summer.

Intermediate and expert skiers will find no end of fun as well. The Summit and Powderhorn areas feature terrain as steep as you care to ski. And from the top of each, you can shimmy through a gate into Honeycomb Canyon, a crown feature of the resort. This canyon bears the remnants of the mountain's mining history; in fact, the Honeycomb Cliffs at the top of the canyon are so named because they're nearly hollow from mine-shaft tunnels. Mine-tailings piles and even old cabin remnants are scattered throughout the Summit and Honeycomb areas, serving as constant reminders of the place's hardy history.Skier at Solitude Mountain Resort by Austen Diamond Photography

Best Places to Stay at Solitude

Especially lining the public ski bus routes, there are a bevy of hotels in Cottonwood Heights, Sandy, and Millcreek, the suburbs closest to the Cottonwood Canyons. Stay in this area, and you're poised for a timely strike on powder mornings or sunshine cruiser days. You can, of course, also stay in or near downtown Salt Lake. It adds a negligible amount of time to your ski transit and opens up a world of options as far as both lodging and nightlife are concerned. A great in-between compromise is the Sugarhouse neighborhood, which sits squarely between downtown and the canyons. It's a colorful and hip area offering tons of walkable restaurants, bars, and neat-o locally owned shops.Relaxing After a Day at Solitude by Austen Diamond Photography

Best Places to Eat at Solitude 

Be sure to start your day right, which likely means fueling up en route to skiing. Check out Roots Café in Millcreek for a killer huevos rancheros platter and piping-hot coffee. Or make a stop at Angel Café in Cottonwood Heights for an unforgettable breakfast just a few minutes away from the canyons. (Their angelic menu includes a "Cupid's Basket," an array of fried biscuits and croissants with berry toppings and creamy sauces. It sounds too decadent, until you remember you're about to ski all day, and you order two.) After skiing at Solitude, satiate your immediate hunger with a flatbread at the village's Honeycomb Grill or a lasagna at Silver Fork Lodge, a charming old spot along the Big Cottonwood Canyon Road. But definitely save some room for a proper dinner and drinks in town later. If you're staying in Sugarhouse, head to the popular 9th and 9th area for an array of eating and drinking options in a neighborhood you'll want to stroll around. Pago is a favorite for locally sourced, sublime food. And East Liberty Tap serves quality cocktails right across the street.

Downtown, it's hard to go wrong—but if you don't stop for a drink and a bite at Copper Common, you'll regret it. Taqueria 27 also offers a head-turning taco menu, right next door to hotspot Bar X, where the cocktails flow and the lights are turned low. If you need carbohydrates to complete your adventure day, check out Stanza Italian Bistro & Wine Bar. It's got the atmosphere and the decadent noodle dishes to put your body at ease and prep it for another big day.Friends Hanging Out by Austen Diamond Photography
