Skiing, Snowboarding, Snow Shoeing, and Cross Country Skiing at Solitude
Boasting over 500" of annual snowfall Solitude is known for minimal lines and vast and varied terrain. Whether you want to cruise groomers or head off trail for unsurpassed off-piste action you will be able to satisfy your stoke here.
If the steep is not your thing consider spending a day cross-country skiing through the pines and aspens out of Solitude's Nordic Center. Rent some snow shoes in the village and head out on one of the trails.
Skiing and Snowboarding at Brighton
Want to mix things up? Simply head up the summit lift and ski over to Brighton via the Sol-Bright trail. Spend all day enjoying a whole different resort with a decidedly local vibe. When you are done simply return via Sol-Bight and ski right back to the condo. If you prefer to drive Brighton's parking lot is just a short 1.5 miles up the canyon road.
Wild flowers, fresh mountain air, vistas lie right at your door. Lift service available during the summer season.
Ride or take the lift up. Enjoy the descent on many of Solitudes maintained trails.
Where to Eat:
Our Solitude Village Favorites
Upscale dinning right at the base of the mountain in Creekside. Eat outide on the great patio if the weather is good.
Tasty pizza made to order right in the center of Solitude Village. If it is a busy weekend you may want to order ahead as they can get backed up at this popular place.
Possibly one of the best dining experiences in Utah. Snowshoe out to the woods for an incredible dining experience in a Mongolian style yurt. This fine dining experience is one of our favorites. Get reservations early as this often sells out.
Accessible directly from the top of every lift at Solitude except Summit and Sunrise this mid mountain resturant offers great food and nice place to kick up your boots during the middle of the day. Enjoy the mountain inspired cusine which includes both Wasatch and Himalayan favorites. If it is a sunny day eat on one of the tables and enjoy the secenic view.
Long time Solitude apre-ski watering hole.
In Silver Fork
Silver Fork Lodge (Close to Solitude)
Less than a mile down the canyon from Solitude this is the only non Solitude Resturant option up in the canyon. SFL has great food and is one of our favorites.
In Salt Lake City (12.5 miles down the Canyon)
With various locations throughout the Salt Lake Valley this fresh casual Mexican eatery is beloved by Utahans for its amazing food. Try the pork tacos and the salads. Missed it during your trip you can get your Cafe Rio fix at the airport.
