Solitude Reviews & Tips (27)

Tuesday Solitude earned its name, as there was only a handful of people on the slopes. It was lovely in the morning - just a tad icy on the groomed runs, which were virtually untouched, and a beautiful blue sky. But by about noon, the snow had softened considerably, and it was really hard to keep moving on flatter areas. If the weather stays in the upper 40s, consider a warm weather wax to help you avoid getting stuck, and hit the sun-facing slopes early. The far end (by the Eagle Express lift) was the slowest to soften - just be careful of the shadows, where it stays pretty icy.

Solitude is just that - solitude. Great snow, no crowds, and a variety of terrain for all levels. This was my first visit to Utah, and Honeycomb canyon was a treat! Liftopia makes ticket purchases easy, and affordable.

GREAT mountain! First time for me. You do not need to rent a car from the Salt Lake airport to Solitude. Shuttle is easy and sufficient! The Inn at Solitude is the BEST place to stay i.e. friendly, courteous, and a free delicious breakfast! Will be back next year!

There's a little glade on the NE side of the Return Lift out of HoneyComb. If you can get there early, it's glorious.

I can see why the locals prefer to ski here. The resort is affordable, low-key, and no crowds. The snow was not great for Utah standards, but there was plenty of powder for decent skiing. For those who like long and scenic routes, I recommend the Sol/Bright run off of the Summit lift. Even though it starts off at the Back Door run, which is labled a black run, it is not that difficult. Make sure you have speed towards the middle of the run because it turns into a catwalk. Probably not a good run for a snowboarder, but highly recommended for people who enjoy isolated runs that are not too difficult.

Got tixs through LIfttopia one day in advance of going up to Solitude. First time using the service and all went very well, would use service again. Drove up, parked and straight to will call - easiest thing in the world. So far so good. I usually hang around Alta and Snowbird when in Utah but wanted to try something new. I really enjoyed Solitude. Nice terrain, good tree skiing and a not as steep as the A &SB which was nice to get a bit more cruising in. Weather was changing as I was there on 1/29 so a few fresh inches smoothed out the experience. I think on deep powder day or just a day or two after a big dump this place will be just phenomenal and less crowded than its more famous neighbors - which is the way I like it as I come to Utah in search of freshies in the promised land! Locals are very friendly and helpful showing a newbie a few tips which was nice!

It was wonderful! Big open runs with lots of diversity for all! Only downside is they need more snow but other than that it was a great hill for the price!

Really nice quiet resort with good variety of green-blue-black trails. Tip: Don't go past the return chair in Honeycomb Canyon. Get on that chair and go back up. I cruised past it and wound up on a terribly long and flat cat track with ruts in it and uphill areas.

Plenty here for everybody; no wasted time in lift lines, friendly, helpful staff, great scenery, and very accessible. Plan on returning and staying at the Village next time.

Amazing areas to explore in Honeycomb Canyon. See if you can find the abandoned log cabin with the window you can ski through!

Incredible place for the family. The ski and board instructors are so great. Usually have a tough time talking my son into lessons, but was excited to go the next day with the same instructor.

When the blue trail solbright says ungroomed even thought it looks groomed ....believe the sign. When you get part way down its ungroomed and expert. Had to take skies off and walk back up about a half mile.. wish i would have believed the sign

Great place to ski, quiet, no lift lines & runs to yourself. Grooming was much better than anticipated. Some great blue mogul runs to practice your form. It is also quite easy to move around the resort. The errain is every bit as good as the rest of the PC or Canyon resorts. Add a few more high speed lifts and this could be my new favorite.

Many great resort trail force you to walk > 30 feet after you get off the lift. Then you make sharp turn then walk up to the lift. Solitude design most the trail and lift to let you go up and down lift chair smoothly and almost effortless. You get to enjoy downhill skiing. Not staining cross country to get to some trail. Major run are wide and smooth with consistent slope. It is heavenly. The SLC bus also bring you up to snow bird/Alta or Brighton so easy such that you do not need to deal with mountain driving.

Loved this mountain! Came with my son who snowboarded and skiied fore the first time. We both took Board lessons day 1 and by the end of the day both of us were boarding down intermediate slopes. We switched to skiis day 2 and 3 and had a fabulous time. The rental place was awesome about refitting to skiis with no issues at all. Stayed in Solitude Villiage - excellent service and good affordable food as well. No crowds this time of year. I will definitely be back - usually go to Deer Valley and Park City, the quieter mountain and family atmosphere was definitely appealing here.

Advanced intermediates can find enough escape routes in Honeycomb Canyon to have fun surrounded by top notch scenery. Get there cause it is a lot cheaper than guides and helicoptors.

Smaller than Alta/Snowbird, but not as busy - so expert areas not skied out. Plenty of powder still in Honeycomb - not difficult double blacks on left hand side. Based on skiing Fri 3rd Feb

Solitude had decent snow for a poor season...ditto what Phil said. As an intermediate skier, the blues were very challenging and got icy as the day went on.

Renee Intermediate Skier
If you have been regularly riding blues elsewhere and want a challenge, there are some steeper blues off the Eagle lift. Also keep that in mind if you're not ready. If you're a solid green rider, you may not find as much here to hold your interest. However, you could probably spend years exploring the expert stuff here.

Pssst, don't tell anyone (only to your best friends) ... a luxury ski resort with wonderful slopes of all steepness ... and almost private, with very few skiers ... it makes you feel "rich" on soul to ski this white paradise.

Season pass holder here, 100+ days this year. Solitude is amazing, little competition for pow, great steeps, and long groomers. Honeycomb canyon is where to go if you are an expert, but solitude also has a gentle side. This is an easy place to ski with a group of multiple levels, you can skiing black or blues off most lifts or blues and greens. The friendliest staff I have even seen. They have a brown bag room with a microwave and big screen TV. Solitude is the hidden gem of SLC.
