Where Is Solitude Mountain Ski Resort Located?

This Utah ski resort is located 34 miles from Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC), which is serviced by most major airlines. Once you get into the city, you can rent a car or find space on a one of the shuttles that goes to the resort. You can also take advantage of the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) standard or ski bus service.

Whether you prefer the ease of Creekside Lodge's quick slope access, the elegance of the Powderhorn Lodge, the majestic views of Eagle Springs East and West, the spacious town homes at The Crossings, or the slopeside mountain lodge and first-class hotel experience of the Inn at Solitude, it's hard to go wrong here. Along with extra amenities such as Club Solitude, each accommodation offers unique style and service while still capturing the true spirit of Solitude.
