It was a beautiful moonlit night as we made our way through the woods to the Solitude Yurt.

A Dining Tour of Solitude

Posted By: Nick Como, February 4, 2018

Skiing makes us hungry. Very, very hungry. Some of our “simpler” family members call us foodies. Not really, we’re more….eaters.

Solitude’s Family Secret

Posted By: Solitude Mountain, October 16, 2017

“Utah’s secret slopes.” This is a term that is used to describe Solitude Mountain, a world-class resort with a base area village, easy access to Salt Lake City, and truckloads of snow. Solitude has everything required for a seamless ski trip and there’s plenty to do when the lifts stop spinning or when your legs need a break from all that powder skiing.

Après 101

Posted By: Solitude Mountain, October 16, 2017

“Do they even have normal strength beer in Utah?” Though it’s a common misconception muddled by old state liquor laws, the answer is, in fact, yes. Today, many first-time ski vacationers to Salt Lake City have yet to lift the preconception. And on a trip to Solitude, you can study up and learn how to navigate the après scene. After all, a cocktail or microbrew post-skiing is synonymous with the sport.

Far East in the West

Posted By: Solitude Mountain, October 16, 2017

A classic Wasatch blower storm was winding down, dropping over 40 inches in two days as the parting clouds began to mix with glimpses of sun. It hadn’t stopped snowing all winter, just brief windows of clearing that typically accompanied a day of sun sandwiched between storm cycles. I was running on fumes, having not taken a day off in close to a month and in need of something to eat—a good problem to have given the winter’s stellar conditions.

The racks of skis outside Solitude’s on-mountain restaurant, the Roundhouse were packed. Apparently the rumors of the best Himalayan food in Salt Lake City were true. I had spent the morning catching up with friends who were visiting from out of town, lapping knee-deep powder, serendipitously timed with the opening of Evergreen. The conditions were surreal, yet the day wasn’t even half over. So I was looking forward to finally tasting the acclaimed cuisine while I waited for the Highway to Heaven backcountry gate to open.

Girlfriend Getaway to Solitude Mountain Resort

Posted By: Julianna Smith, April 11, 2017

Who else has some good girls in their lives? If you’re lucky like I am, you are surrounded by career-driven, smart, and talented women. These amazing attributes are also the reasons it’s hard to see these women regularly. As the cliché goes, “life gets in the way,” but it’s true and it is exactly why you need to plan a girls’ night at Solitude Mountain Resort like I did! Kidnap these busy babes from their husbands/kids/jobs/obligations and throw caution to the wind (if only for a night)! Or just invite them; you don’t have to kidnap them. They might prefer to plan ahead too, I guess.

A Weekend of Eating to End Hunger

Posted By: Nick Como, August 3, 2016

Yes, that sounds obvious - we eat when we're hungry, duh. However, that's not the hunger the annual Taste of the Wasatch aims to end. For over a decade, the quintessential Wasatch dining event takes over the lawn at the base of the Solitude Village with Utah's finest chefs, cases of wine, local beers and dozens of desserts in the name of ending childhood hunger.

If you're thinking this concept sound a tad ironic, you're right. Eating copious amounts of gourmet food to raise dollars and awareness for charity is dripping in irony. Think of the Taste of the Wasatch weekend as an opportunity to help those less fortunate: from silent auction items available at the event, to time and resource donations.

This four-hour Sunday event also allows for the opportunity to chat with the chef's, learn which wines (or beers) pair with what types of foods and take in the fresh mountain air. It's no secret food tastes better at altitude, so you have to have a plan to fit it all in. Yes, this sounds rather gluttonous, but it's for charity!  I've perfected this art, though it took ten years of trial and error to dial in the right program. We like to make a weekend of it in the Solitude Village, staying Saturday and Sunday nights, if possible.
