The Space This is what we like about our space:
1. First floor unit with 9 foot ceilings thorough out - feels large and airier than units on other floors that are nearly all 7.5 to 8 foot ceilings. The ceiling height makes a big difference in the space.
2. The condo faces the west side so can see the resort, village and ice rink and west side is where you get the best light.
3. Lockout versatility. Renting this unit is really like getting two units. One side has a lock out door, separate entrance, full bathroom, fridge and microwave, small table and a king bed, double bed and twin bed that sleeps up to five people (assuming you have two that want to sleep on a double bed - perfect for small kids). On the other side of the lockout is a one bedroom condo with a second room with king bed, a second full bathroom with oversized soaking tub and shower, a full kitchen, dining area and living room with queen sized sofa sleeper and fireplace. This unit will easily accommodate two small groups or families and each can have their own entrance, bathroom and private space. The lockout room is also great if you’re bringing kids as there’s video games on the TV in the back of the lockout and the double bunkbed serves as a couch so easy for kids to have a place to hangout and the adults can spend time in the other space. I have four kids myself and this is a feature we’ve really enjoyed.
4. First floor is very convenient. It’s also nice to just come and go easily with ski gear without having to navigate from the back of the lodge and down elevators. Another advantage is that kids can come and go from the back entrance to the condo and bypass the lodge entrance for quicker access to the snow and ice rink. We also love the location because there’s no one beneath us so we don’t have concerns about kids bothering someone below.
5. Another benefit to the location that most don’t know about is that there are only 9 units on the first floor. On the second through fourth floors there are around 24 units a floor. The parking garage is basement level so there is less traffic down the halls on first floor. Guest Access Condo rental includes lobby level ski and snowboard lockers, free underground parking, free laundry facilities and access to Club Solitude. (This includes an outdoor heated pool, sauna, movie theater, gym, game room and hot tubs.) There is also a hot tub in the Powderhorn lodge, six on site restaurants and a spa and bar. Interaction with Guests I live South of Salt Lake City and am within an hour from Solitude. Club Solitude can assist with key issues or other issues from 7:00 AM to 12:00 PM. I can provide assistance if there are issues Club Solitude can't resolve. I'll do what is needed to make sure your stay is trouble free and enjoyable. The Neighborhood Village at Solitude is a ski-in/ski-out mountain resort that is less than 40 minutes from Salt Lake City International Airport.
Solitude has over 1,200 acres of skiable terrain, ranging from groomed runs to powder glades and Nordic trails. Solitude Mountain Resort has 77 named runs with eight chairlifts, including four high-speed quads, two fixed quads, one triple chair and one double chair.
Restaurants offer great variety from fine dining with white linens to wood fire pizza and sodas. Spa and Bar onsite and all the amenities of Club Solitude, including pool, hot tubs, movie theater and game rooms for kids. Great winter mountain terrain and Solitude amenities makes our place the perfect spot for your next vacation. Getting Around Solitude Resort is located 12 miles up Big Cottonwood Canyon on the southeast side of the Salt Lake valley. It's a 40 minute drive to Solitude from the Salt Lake City airport. Park City is a little over an hour drive in winter and Snowbird and Alta are up the canyon just to the south of Big Cottonwood and maybe a 45 minute drive depending on conditions. Brighton ski resort is right next to Solitude and both resorts can be skied from the Solitude Village with the purchase of a combined resort pass. If you're getting a rental car, I would recommend four wheel drive in winter. City does a good job clearing the canyon road of snow but at times four wheel drive is required. Other Things to Note The village has great amenities including an outdoor pool open year round, multiple hot tubs and sauna, a spa, a number of onsite restaurants, a bar and an ice skating rink – with gas fire pits to keep your hands warm. Deer Valley recently acquired Solitude and is improving the quality of the resort from top to bottom. They've improved amenities, restaurant menus and added a new high speed summit lift. Solitude has a great feel to it. It just feels like a place you can relax. Though it has one of the best mountains in the state, the feel is one of a smaller resort where you rarely wait in lift lines or fight crowds. Resort staff are friendly and you always feel at home. ...
