About Solitude Mountain
Solitude Mountain Resort opened in the fall of 1957 with just two chairlifts and now features 1,200 acres of explorable terrain.
Solitude Mountain Resort is 40 minutes from the Salt Lake International Airport and can be accessed via two entry points (next to the lodge or in the Village).
Solitude offers countless attractions within the resort. During the summer season, Solitude’s Sunrise Chairlift runs Fridays – Sundays from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. offering access to scenic chairlift rides, hiking, mountain biking and a disc golf course. During the winter months, guests can explore two distinct ski terrains – the Moonbeam and Village base areas. For those guests looking to relax and truly unwind, Solitude also offers an onsite spa.
