12000 Big Cottonwood Canyon Rd, Solitude, UT, United States
NileGuide Expert tip:
During the summer months, a great place for moose sightings is on the Silver Lake trail. Park at Solitude's Nordic Center and follow the boardwalk for an easy yet beautiful and relaxing hike around Silver Lake.
Solitude Mountain Resort along with nearby Brighton Ski Resort are lesser-known (and usually less crowded) destinations than the larger resorts in Park City and in Little Cottonwood Canyon, but offer great skiing and summer activities and good value. Solitude and Brighton, located in Big Cottonwood Canyon, are close to downtown and only about 40 minutes from the airport. Solitude offers a quaint pedestrian village with shops and restaurants, and new condos available for nightly or weekly rental. Solitude's recently-added high-speed quad lifts get the ski day started fast for guests staying in the local village. Summer at Solitude features a mountain Frisbee-golf course: ride up the chair lift, throw (and chase) your Frisbee down the rugged terrain through 18 wickets.
