BIG COTTONWOOD CANYON, Utah — Solitude Mountain Resort is set to kick off the ski and snowboard season with an early dose of excitement for Solitude and Ikon Pass holders on Friday, November 10, defying its original opening date of November 17. This marks Solitude’s earliest opening in a decade.
The Link lift is primed to operate from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. this Friday through Sunday, providing access to Easy Street. As conditions permit, Solitude plans to unveil additional lifts and terrain in the coming days.
Amber L. Broadaway, Solitude’s President & Chief Operating Officer, expresses the resort’s dedication to providing the lengthiest season possible.
“Local skiers and snowboarders are eager to hit the slopes, and it’s the tireless efforts of our mountain operations team that have paved the way for this early opening. They’ve worked diligently, maximizing snowmaking endeavors and positioning us for yet another incredible season,” Broadaway states.
For this opening weekend, lift tickets will be available at a special rate of $25. Additionally, in honor of Veterans Day on Saturday, November 11th, Solitude extends gratitude to active-duty, reserve, retired, and veteran military personnel by offering free lift tickets. Parking is also complimentary for all guests throughout the weekend, and no reservations are needed.
Looking ahead, the resort will resume operations on Friday, November 17, hosting the previously scheduled DJ + Donuts Opening Day Party. For real-time updates on snow totals, lift and terrain status, as well as live webcams throughout the season, visit Solitude’s website.
