Solitude Mountain Resort likes to tout itself as a hideaway amid the Wasatch Mountains, close to the city yet light-years away from the hustle and bustle.
Those skiers and snowboarders who venture up Big Cottonwood Canyon to the 1,200 acres of inbounds terrain at Solitude to find some peace for their souls can also discover a little relaxation for their bodies. The Solitude Mountain Spa, located in the resort's Bavarian-style village, offers a threesome of deals that combine spa treatments with other Solitude activities.
Wednesday skiers and riders can finish off their day with a treatment at the spa and then move over to St. Bernard's restaurant for a three-course prix fixe gourmet meal. This pair of pamperings costs $120, and an additional $20 will include wine matched to the meal.
Weekend visitors who put up $235 get a 10-ride lift pass, redeemable on both Saturday and Sunday, and an hour-plus treatment each afternoon.
Women who like to gather as girlfriends for a day can do so at the spa. A morning session is followed by a private lunch. Then, the afternoon wraps up with another round of treatments. This package costs $350 per person.
The Solitude Spa, owned by Solitude Mountain Resort and managed by Suzanne Hawk, offers treatments, facials, massages, and packages that can be customized for individual needs. The staff especially knows how to treat and relieve ski specific soreness and fatigue.
