Full review

Solitude is a gem. We had alternating days of sun and fresh snow. Over a foot of powder when it snowed. The village is quaint and has everything you need. We stayed in a condo in the village that had a great kitchen but was a little bit of an uphill walk. The walk was tiring at the end of the day, but the kitchen and accomodations were worth it.

We were there on the first weekend of the President's week holiday. There were no lift lines until Sunday afternoon when they got to be about 5 minutes. This was only when the resort parking lot was overfilled. Even with the lines there was plenty of room on the mountain to go without worrying about too many people in your way or coming up behind you.

Overall great snow, great people, and a great time!
