About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

The Solitude experience is really something that you must experience before you can understand how wonderful it. Nestled in the heart of beautiful Big Cottonwood Canyon is a charming little European style village. Set inside of the village are little restaurants, a small ice skating rink, a beautiful club with heated pool and hot tubs, and tons and tons of snow. Right next to the village is Apex and Sunrise lifts that you take you up the mountain to some world class skiing and powder. The experience that you will have there with your family is one that will keep you coming back for more and more. Solitude's list of annual guests keeps growing and growing.

About our upgraded condo: It was built in 2000 but was just purchased by myself at the end of 2010 and completely refurnished with every piece of furniture. In 2017 we upgraded our appliances and bunk beds. We haveSecure WIFI and HD Televisions. Our unit is in the Powderhorn Lodge, facing the inside of the courtyard, giving you peace and quiet throughout your stay. The unit is One Bedroom + Den and is 759 square feet. It has a King Bed in the bedroom, a bunkbed in the den, and two full size couch beds in the living room (5 beds total) It sleeps up to 6 people. We also have a 42' High Def Television (1080p) in the Living Room, a 32' High Def TV in the bedroom, both connected to a 100+ channel DirecTV package which includes HBO. There is also a 27 inch High Def Internet TV that has streaming Net-Flix available in the den. We have a secure wifi router just for you inside the condo for great internet reception. In the Kitchen we have all the items you'd find in your home (i.e. pots, pans, coffee maker, microwave, etc. even a crock pot ) My business partner and I spend alot of time up here and we have made it as comfortable and amenity filled as possible.

Solitude's European Village is a great resort that has a limited number of rooms available in the Forest Service's Protected area of the Cottonwood Canyons in Utah. The Cottonwood Canyons are world reknowned for it's continual 500 annual inches of fresh powder that falls year after year. Brighton (featured in a few Warren Miller movies) is 2 miles up the canyon and you can purchase a Solitude/Brighton lift pass which allows access to both resorts.

Solitude's skiing is excellent. My favorite part about it is enjoying the same powder you see at Alta/Snowbird but you have hardly any lift lines. As a local Utah skiier, it has become my favorite resort because of this. Most Utah locals know that the Cottonwood Canyons, because of their location as the forefront Mountains in the Rockies, get significantly more snow than other Utah and Colorado resorts. These Mountains rise above the Salt Lake Valley floor in an extreme display of vertical change. They pierce the clouds, draining them of their precious, light powder and then allow them to float over to Park City, Deer Valley, and the Canyons where they deposit half of the amount of snow.

About Nathan

Nathan & Rick are friends that met while working in the same building in Salt Lake City. Both are avid skiiers with families. Nathan works as a CFO while Rick works as an agent with State Farm.

Nathan purchased this condo in 2010

Why Nathan chose Solitude

They decided to purchase the condo after Nathan vacationed there over the July 4th weekend. He felt like he was in a different country, thousands of miles away with some of the most gorgeous scenery that he'd every seen; Though he was only 30 minutes from his house. Nathan convinced Rick to invest with him and they've loved the place ever since.

What makes this condo unique

The Ski-in/Ski-out is huge as Nathan has younger kids that don't want to ski very long, though it doesn't spoil the trip when their done. The nature up there is amazing, both during the summer and winter. Club Solitude is great for staying entertained and refreshed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Nathan,

We had a very nice time at your place and at Solitude. It would have been better if we could have a bit more snow, but I don't think you could have done anything about that. You have a nice place and we will look to rent from you again if we go again.

Happy New Year!

This condo was great for a family of 4

  • 5 of 5

The condo was excellent for a ski trip. It's on the first floor and about 200 steps from Apex lift. The internet was very good. There were lots of dishes, spices, even some tea, sugar, foil, etc. There was plenty of shampoo, conditioner, lotion, towels, pillows, blankets. A friend's family was staying in another room, and all 8 of us were able to hang out and play games in our unit. All of these made our stay very enjoyable, and I highly recommend this unit. Do buy groceries in Salt Lake City, the resort store has less items than in a gas station. Also, if you are from low lands, consider getting meds for altitude sickness. Although not as high as CO, we were all impacted to some degree.

Perfect for our party of 3 - everyone was very comfortable and we were able to enjoy the restaurants and bars in the village. The pool/hot tub was very close and easy to access and of course the mountain was great. Great trip!
