Day 6: Skiing Solitude, Utah – summary

By on February 20, 2015 in USA

Last day of skiing on this trip….

Tough call to make. Do we go back and ski where we have skied before, therefore hopefully getting a good end to the trip, or do we try somewhere new? Tough call. If we go to a new place and it turns out not to be that good then we finish the ski trip on a low, on the other hand, we risk missing the chance to find somewhere new and exciting.

We decided to try somewhere new and headed to Solitude. It was a good call.

Solitude is only about 8 miles from Park City, but that is the direct route and to get there by car you need to drive for about 35 miles, 40 minutes or so. However, the trip is worth it as it is a great little ski area.

The snow was in fantastic order, there were no lift lines, and we had a great day on the slopes.

Solitude is what I would call a ‘mom and pop’ ski area in New England; it is a small ski area that has a ‘homely’ feel. The base lodge is not over-large, it has a bar and a place to buy food, and a small shop. There is even a room for people ‘brown-bagging’ their lunch.

However, to the far left of the resort, there is a ‘development’ that has an odd ‘alpine’ feel to it, and it is a significant development. Quite odd.
