The first rule about Solitude is we don't talk about Solitude. This is my favorite area in Utah. Great snow. Great terrain. Never crowded. Does it have as much "extreme" terrain as Alta or Snowbird? Nope. Am I hucking myself off of cliffs? Not on purpose. The front side of the mountain is a joy to ski with some awesome trails. This seems right up most skiers' alleys. The backside (aka Honeycomb Canyon) though is a different world. It's big. It's steep. It's ungroomed and it feels like it's all yours. I've skied a whole day back there and run into maybe another dozen skiers. Powder lingers back there for days after a storm. I'd wear a cambelback because digging out after a spill can be exhausting ... and you're not going to want to stop skiing for something silly like hydration.
