Solitude Overview

In 1959, in the heart of Utah's Wasatch Mountains, a small ski resort was opened, mostly to cater for local skiers from Salt Lake City, 23 miles away. From the start it was a homely, casual, easy-going sort of place and although it has now grown into a leading Utah resort with a wide variety of skiing and excellent facilities to match, the friendly unpretentious atmosphere is still very much in evidence.

Off the Mountain

Solitude Aprés Ski

The Main Lodge at Entry No 2 houses the Solitude Club (for members) and the Thirsty Squirrel. There's locally brewed beer, wine, mixed drinks and comfortable surroundings and is the gathering place for the Yurt and Roundhouse dining departures. The Thirsty Squirrel is where local skiers gather and reflect on the day's powder skiing.

In 2009 a new law came into effect changing Utah’s bar scene. In the past purchasing a temporary membership was required to get into a bar or club. Bars, pubs and clubs now have an open door policy to welcome all comers over 21 and no longer require customers to purchase a temporary membership.
