About the Ski Resort

Solitude Mountain Resort is nestled at 8,000 feet in spectacular Big Cottonwood Canyon.

A long time favorite of Utah skiers, Solitude's friendly, family-oriented atmosphere and uncrowded lifts are no longer a well-kept secret.

With an average snowfall of 500 inches of wonderful Utah powder, more than 1,200 acres and 66 named runs and bowls, Solitude is great for skiers and snowboarders of all abilities.

Wide open bowls under spectacular cliffs, open glades and tight tree runs are just some of the challenges of Honeycomb's 400 plus acres. You won't find any lifts in Honeycomb Canyon and few other skiers, just an unforgettable ski challenge amid the beauty and tranquillity unique to Solitude. Accessed from three lifts, the only groomed trail is the exit trail along the canyon floor.

The Ski/Snowboard School offers expertly designed programs catering to every age group and all levels of skiing and snowboarding ability.

The Ski/Snowboard School is located at the Moonbeam Learning Center, at Entry One. Adults will find specially-designed learn-to-ski programs, private lessons and custom group ski lessons for all ages.

Solitude's Nordic Center, the new Silver Lake Day Lodge, is the base for cross-country skiing. Skiers can enjoy more than 20 km of trails prepared for both classical and skating. The Day Lodge offers ski rentals, lessons and snacks and makes a great base for enjoying the serenity of Nordic skiing amid the splendor of the Wasatch.
