Family Friendly Solitude Mountain Resort


Located just 40 minutes’ drive from Salt Lake City airport, you’ll find a small but perfectly formed, family friendly ski spot.

Utah’s Solitude Mountain Resort is home to 1,200-plus acres of skiable terrain. And, with over 500 inches annually covering 65 named trails and three bowls, the region’s no stranger to snow.

Whatever your ability, there’s fun to be had at Solitude Mountain Resort. Are you or members of your party still getting the hang of this whole skiing malarkey? Solitude is made up of 20% beginner and 50% intermediate trails. This leaves 30% for the skillful folk and don’t forget Brighton Resort is only minutes up the road, meaning you can easily explore two of Utah’s greatest.

On your journey to becoming the Best. Skier. Ever, check out Solitude Snowsport Academy. It takes on students young and old in four snow-sport disciplines: alpine skiing, snowboarding, telemarking and Nordic skiing. With an emphasis on safety and technique, it’s a great way to build confidence and learn new skills slopeside.

If you’re an advanced/expert skier there’s plenty of off piste terrain to explore. Honeycomb Canyon is a Solitude standout, boasting backcountry terrain that’s also lift accessible.

Of course, we don’t expect you to be chained to the mountain all holiday long. Unwind in Club Solitude’s pools, saunas, and hot tubs; get your après on at the Thirsty Squirrel; or get pampered good and proper at Solitude Mountain Spa. If you are lodging with the kids, ice skating, snow shoeing under the stars, or a movie in Solitude’s theatre is a must.

If Solitude Mountain Resort looks like the place you want to spend your overseas holiday (and Destination Utah highly recommends you do), you can save up to 20% off lodging at the Solitude Resort Condominiums. Condo’s range from studio to three bedrooms, each with a fully-equipped kitchen, dining and living area, balcony, wood burning or gas fireplace, and TV.

The promotion also applies at The Inn at Solitude, a ski in/ski out hotel in the heart of Solitude Resort.

Solitude is perfect for families, couples and small groups of friends seeking enjoyable skiing, away from the hustle and bustle of a large snow town. At Solitude Resort, little is beautiful.
