Full review

We booked two days at Solitude right after opening day in conjunction with business trip and it was great. All the staff, from the liftees to the rental guys to the bartenders were super nice. Maybe because it was the opening weekend and they weren't burned out yet but everybody treated us like they really appreciated our business. I took my boots and rented a board and the rental shop guys were very accommodating. I took the board back in and asked for a different size binding and they swapped them out immediately. The snow conditions could have been better for sure, but what the heck, it was mid-November. On the plus side, there were ZERO lift lines, so I could get in as many runs as I could stand. Our slope-side condo in Creekside was nice and really convenient to everything. Nightlife was a little lacking, but my wife and I don't party much anyway. I do plan on booking another trip late this winter.
