I stayed 4 days at Solitude in December 2007, just after they got about 30 inches. What a great mountain. The facilities are all new and the mountain is as challenging as any in the area (or CO for that matter). There was no one there, no lift lines, period. The expert terrain was tough and the groomers were super fast. They opened the canyon the last day we were there and we skied powder to our knees. I will return to Solitude as the condo, club and skiing were fantastic. The night life was weak but it was early season before Christmas and I go there to ski anyway. I have skied all the major mountains in this area and would rate Solitude #1 over all.
