Solitude Mountain Resort Opens Today

Full parking lot on opening day

There’s practically nothing on the slopes of Utah this week including snow yet Solitude Mountain Resort opens today. The Big Cottonwood Canyon resort is claiming their earliest opening in 10 years…even if it’s on one beginner run, on seven inches of manmade snow.

Huge lines at Solitude for opening day 2022

Those eager to stand in line and say they were there, can do laps on the Link lift this weekend starting at 10 a.m. Tickets are just $25 so it might be worth the bragging rights? Or use the opening as an excuse to pick up your Ikon Pass and get the storage wax off your bases. The mountain will even have a few terrain park features set up.

Lift tickets will be available at the Moonbeam ticket office. In observance of Veteran’s Day, Solitude is offering free lift tickets to all military personnel with a military ID on November 11. Parking is also complimentary throughout the weekend, no reservations are needed.

To be honest, it’s really no biggie to skip this limited weekend and head up for Solitude’s originally planned opening date of Nov. 17th. The longer you wait, the more coverage there will be. Unfortunately, there’s not much snow in the near forecast but a possible storm late next week could help to open more terrain. Still, you can do DJ and Donuts at Moonbeam on November 17.
