On a Powder Day this is where I would head in SLC. Wide open bowls and glades easily accessed from lifts. Even without skiing Honeycomb there are tons of lines to be had! A great local's mountain!

Solitude was my favorite resort in the Salt Lake basin! With killer glades in the Headwall Forest, I was entertained and challenged for several hours! Solitude has some stellar lift access to terrain and natural features! The resort provides a spacious and beautiful skiing environment for its patrons and visitors!

Had a wonderful experience, overall, at the Solitude Mountain Resort!

For some reason which I can't quite put my finger on, Solitude is one of my favorite resorts in the SLC area. It might have something to do with the fact that people generally gravitate to one of the other more-famous resorts in the immediate area. Empty lifts mean no waiting in lines and more powder to go around! Solitude offers plenty of aggressive inbounds riding including wide-open faces, steep trees and chutes, and plenty of cliffs. Solitude also has easy-to-access backcountry when everything inbounds gets tracked up. Also, Solitude has some of the best grooming in the SLC area. This is great for beginner and intermediate skiers, and even if you're an advanced skier, every now and then it's just plain fun to arc massive GS turns all the way down the mountain.
