Hidden in Plain Sight: Riding with Vivian Bengtson

Posted By: Jeremy Pugh, March 31, 2016

See here’s the thing about Solitude. It’s got depth. So while you can make a lap around its outer rim in under an hour, you can spend the season exploring all of its nooks and crannies. Sometimes it helps to have a guide.

Meet Vivian Bengtson. The 30-year-old shredder is one of Solitude’s athletes, a local girl who grew up riding Solitude who knows all of its secrets. She deigned to spend one morning this season riding with 43-year-old dude and gave me a tour of Solitude, which wasn’t at all the Solitude I know.

Now me? I am a self-described “gringo skier,” fully committed and accepting of my mostly on-piste world. I venture into the trees and powder but honestly? I love a good groomer on one of those perfect days, where the snow is holding just the right amount and I can make fast (but in control, always sensibly in control) buttery turns. That’s my happy place.

Ladies Rule at the Roundhouse

Posted By: Admin Staff, March 22, 2016

You probably don't know this, but the Roundhouse kitchen is run by some strong, beautiful ladies. They are upstairs and behind the scenes, cooking away in a secret Solitude lady-cave. Of course we have just as many male counterparts, and they are important to the day to day operations, but that's nothing new…we've always had men working there. For seven years I was the lone female, slinging burgers and dishing out soup at the ol' Sunshine Grill. Things are different these days.

ARGENTA VS THIRSTY SQUIRREL

Posted By: Matt Farinelli, March 2, 2016

This honestly isn’t much of a fight. If it is a fight it’s Daniel San vs the Cobra Kai. Sure, they both knew karate. Perhaps it’s Mike Tyson’s come back “fight” against “Hurricane” Peter McNeelly. Those guys were both boxers. That’s about where the similarities start and stop though. Tyson put McNeelly down in a matter of seconds. While it was nice to see him fight again, it wasn’t very fulfilling. Daniel San was one sacred, undefendable kick (don’t look at me, Migyai was that one that said it was undefendable) away from getting his ass kicked for what, the 19th time?

Anyway, the point is, that’s how I feel about Argenta Pub vs. The Thirsty Squirrel. They’re both places to get a drink and a nosh. That’s about all they have in common. Which isn’t a negative and isn’t to say they both don’t have their place. They do.
