Solitude Opening Early – Nov 11th

Solitude Opening Early - Nov 11th

With 45 inches of snow and optimal conditions for snowmaking, Solitude Mountain Resort will open for skiing and snowboarding Friday, November 11th. Originally scheduled for November 18th, early-season snowfall in Big Cottonwood Canyon will lead to Solitude’s earliest opening since 2013. 

Moonbeam Express and Link Lift are scheduled to run from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with access to Same Street, Little Dollie, and Easy Street runs. 

In observance of Veteran’s Day, Solitude is thrilled to offer free Opening Day lift tickets to all active-duty, reserve, retired, and veteran military personnel. 

“It’s so exciting being able to kick off the season early with the help of these storms. All this natural snow, supplemented by our snowmaking efforts, is setting up a perfect base for us to enjoy all winter long as we strive for Utah’s longest ski season.” says Amber Broadaway, Solitude’s president & chief operating officer. “Looking at the forecast, this continued snowfall will be vital as we open the mountain.” 

Opening Day festivities will begin at 8:00 a.m. with free donuts and a DJ. Visit for updated snow totals, lift & terrain status, and live webcams all season long.
