Two weeks remain to ski or ride at Solitude Mountain Resort during winter 2018/19, which has delivered storm after storm of Utah’s legendary powder, bringing Solitude close to 500 inches of snowfall. With a current base of 129 inches, Solitude skiers are set for two more weeks of outstanding mountain fun.

“Winter 2018/19 has been one for the record books,” says Solitude President and COO Kim Mayhew. “We got our groove back with consistent snowfall; we were one of three host venues for the 2019 FIS World Championships that welcomed athletes and spectators from around the globe; and we stood alongside other top destinations in the inaugural season of Ikon Pass. I would like to thank my amazing staff for a job well done and for our guests’ loyalty to their mountain home here at Solitude.”
