Nominations Open for Solitude Small Biz Boost

Solitude Mountain Resort

Solitude Mountain Resort wants to recognize the ingenuity, perseverance, and compassion that has helped to carry our community through the past 12 months by giving away a mini-vacation to three (3) deserving local small business owners or managers.

Applications are open now at www.solitudemountain.com/smallbizboost. Anyone age 18 and older can nominate themselves or someone they know. Submissions should describe how an owner or manager of a Utah-based business of 50 employees or fewer overcame obstacles and showed creativity and caring for their community in the last year.

Kate Macconi, Solitude’s events manager, says, “The last year has been a difficult time for many establishments in our community, and we want to treat some of our most deserving and inspiring neighbors to a well-earned mountain getaway.”

Three (3) outstanding nominees will be selected to enjoy to a mini-vacation for their party of up to four (4) people, including a night at The Inn at Solitude, dinner at Honeycomb Grill, and each person’s choice of lift tickets, Nordic Center access, or a massage at Solitude Mountain Spa — plus equipment rentals and a snack at Little Dollie Waffles. They will also have the chance to have their story highlighted on Solitude’s social and digital media.

Submissions are limited to one per person, and small business owners and managers are welcome to nominate themselves. Solitude will be accepting nominations until 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 10, and winners will be notified no later than Sunday, February 14.
