Conditions permitting, Solitude will open on Saturday, December 2nd. The mountain usually opens with 3 lifts spinning and 6 runs for skiers and snowboarders. The Solitude Nordic Center is also scheduled to open December 2nd.

“Our Solitude family couldn’t be more excited to kick off the 2017-18 winter season,” said Solitude Mountain Resort General Manager Kim Mayhew. “We’ve worked hard making key improvements and upgrades this spring, summer and fall with our guests in mind to offer an even better ski and snowboard experience.”

2017/18 New Improvements

When skiers and snowboarders come to Solitude this season, they will see several changes. First, the Roundhouse restaurant will reopen after a huge remodel. Once again they will offer a Himalayan and Wasatch-inspired menu. In addition, the Last Chance and Moonbeam lodges will have interior upgrades.

On the mountain, the SolBright Trail has been realigned. This is great news for anyone who has been stuck on this trail on a powder day and had to basically hike out. The new alignment on the Solitude return portion will make getting back to the resort much easier.
