Solitude house description

Enjoy everything Solitude has to offer from this four+ bedroom, four+ bath luxury home nestled among pine trees and a snowball's throw from everything you need for a perfect vacation. The closest single-family home to the lifts available in the Solitude resort area, the Spring Branch house is adjacent to Solitude Village amenities and a few steps from the lifts. Ski back to the front door after a day of enjoying Solitude's finest powder or take a break for lunch, it's that easy.

                      Situated just a short 40-minute drive from Salt Lake City Airport and receiving an average of 500 inches of snow each year, Solitude offers a world-class skiing experience in an easy-to-reach location. With the same snow and mountains as high-profile neighbors Alta and Snowbird, a stay at Solitude is significantly more economical. True to its name, lift lines and crowds are a rarity at Solitude, allowing you to truly enjoy the 1200 acres of ski terrain and the charming ambiance of a European-style ski village.
