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.

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.

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.

Introducing New Skiers to Solitude

Posted By: Jess & Brian Maness, January 31, 2017

There is nothing better than when out-of-town friends finally come to visit you in Utah. You’ve been talking up the mountains, the snow, and yes, the beer, for years. We were lucky enough to have the Steves in town: Steve Bergan and Stephen Mitchell of Seattle. When you finally have guests, you want to ensure that you are showing them the best that Utah has to offer. You can give them the option of getting up to Solitude Mountain Resort for some first tracks, or sleeping in and still getting a full day of skiing, since Solitude is so close. We and the Steves slept in.

How to Stay Warm on Your Ski Vacation

Posted By: Nick Como, December 21, 2016

Oooh baby, it’s cold outside. While staying indoors in comfy slippers, under a blanket in front of a roaring fire sounds great, storm day skiing is the best skiing. Here are a few tips on how to stay warm and chase snowflakes around the mountain.

Opening Day Check-In

Posted By: Matt Farinelli, December 14, 2016

In my experience, opening days are usually exciting but at the same time generally forgettable. As far as my all-time first days go, most have seen more icy groomers than pow turns. Well not this year. Not at Solitude.


I wasn't there for true opening day on Friday, December 2, which I was certainly bummed about since Utah just finished up a 40-inch-plus storm cycle earlier in the week. Then a little bird told me (via @skisolitude on Instagram... hint, hint) that PoHo (Powderhorn) and Eagle Express weren't opening until first thing on Saturday, December 3, and things were suddenly looking up.

SKI Magazine Resort Review

Posted By: Ryan Mayfield, October 20, 2016

Last year, Solitude landed at No. 30 in these rankings and here it is rising up to No. 21. Is this the touch of its new Deer Valley owners? The food definitely improved this past season (No. 19), and there was a night-and-day difference in the extent and quality of the grooming (No. 9). But the realignment of the high-speed Apex lift to access a new high-speed Summit chair was a game changer. While old-timers grumbled (“Don’t spoil a good thing…the addition of the high-speed Summit lift was not an improvement”), the rest of us were thrilled to trade a long ride on two ancient lifts for two high-speed hops to the top of Honeycomb Canyon. (“The new Summit lift is wonderful. It opens up the best terrain with a good reliable lift.”)

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.
