Overview

About the property

Please read the reviews - we work hard to make your stay comfortable and fun

NEW FOR 2015/2016 and beyond - all new kitchen appliances and granite counter tops in the kitchen and bathroom with new sinks and faucets. Pictures are posted. We are now owned by Deer Valley so you can expect resort improvements constantly. For example, the old Summit double chair is being replaced by a high speed detachable quad this summer. Food and Beverage operations, along with Customer Service, will be greatly improved this year!

Ground level condo allows access to Solitude Ski Village out the patio door, no stairs or elevators between you and this lovely European style ski village. The master bedroom has a King sized bed, bunk beds have been replaced by an executive desk and work area (printer/scanner incl.) for the professional with a skiing problem that needs to get a little work done while skiing the 'Greatest Snow on Earth'. Living room has a comfortable Queen sized sleeper sofa (with integrated air mattress, super comfie) in front of the gas fireplace. 'Condo 101' artwork and features that you see in all the other condos have been replaced with professionally framed photographs and custom artwork so you feel more at home and less in a generic resort condo. This suite is perfect for a couple and up to two kiddos - we have had two adult couples in here multiple times and that works OK for a few days if you are pretty good friends. If you must watch TV while here, we have DirecTV service with new HDTV's (all the AV inputs you need for movies, game consoles, etc.) in the living room and bedroom. There is a set of self powered Apple speakers that any digital music player can connect to for high quality music. The kitchen has new stainless appliances and granite counter tops (new in 2015)and is well stocked with a crock pot, fondue pot, blender, grind and brew coffee maker, cocktail and wine glasses, spices and enough plates, etc. so you are not running the dishwasher after every meal! Gosh, I almost forgot to tell you about the resort that is located right out the door. We are located 40 minutes from SLC airport and offer underground parking for your rental car, or you can catch a shuttle up and back if you are not road tripping anywhere during your stay. I have done the shuttle many times because once I get here, I don't want to go anywhere else! (Canyon Transport shuttles will make grocery and liquor store stops on the way up canyon if you pre-arrange and take you to other ski resorts and back) Solitude Village is small and cozy, with all the amenities you need unless you are a serial shopper (Salt Lake is 20 minutes away and Park City is less than one hour away if shopping is your thing). There are two resort gift shops, one in the village and one at Moonbeam Center and a small grocery shop in the reception center. There is a lighted skating rink directly in front of the condo with a fire-pit and weekend smores parties, the Stone Haus is 50 feet away and features pizzas, subs, salads and ice cream. The Thirsty Squirrel pub is around the front of the building and they offer food in addition to a full bar (forget what you have heard about Utah liquor laws, it's pretty normal here now). Another hundred feet away is the Honeycomb Grill with some innovative cuisine offerings and a full bar and decent wine list. Next door in the Inn at Solitude, you will find St Bernards', a higher end French style restaurant with the Library Pub adjacent. If you make reservations ahead of time, you can also ski or snowshoe to the Yurt for an unforgettable rustic dining experience. Club Solitude is a couple hundred feet away and offers a good sized heated swimming pool, hot tubs (we also have a hot tub behind the lodge), game room for the kids, media room, pool table and saunas. Now, my favorite part, the ski resort! Snowboards are allowed and encouraged, though if you want a terrain park you need to go up the road 2 miles to Brighton, where they also have night skiing/boarding. Plenty of terrain here at Solitude regardless of your skiing ability; ski school and beginners area with green trails galore down at Moonbeam (base area just below the Village base area). Intermediate cruisers abound as well as tree skiing, bowl skiing and back country gate access (you must have avalanche gear to go out the gates unless you have a death wish). We average 500 inches of snow each year and that makes for really soft slopes under foot (or under butt if you are inclined to falling often) and legendary powder skiing, just like you see in the Warren Miller films. If you prefer groomed slopes, we have the best grooming crew in the ski industry and there is groomed terrain of every skill level available. There is also a Nordic Center up the road at Brighton and a shuttle to take you there and back as well as snowshoe trails all over. Summertime is pretty special up here as well, mountain biking trails, disc golf course (on the mountain) and hiking trails everywhere, wildflowers and wildlife make this a great summer get away and vacation spot. The Sunrise chairlift runs Friday-Sunday and you can rent mountain bikes and golfing discs any day of the week.

About Douglas Cram

Born and raised in Vermont, moved to Atlanta in 1991. Own and operate my own businesses so I have a very flexible schedule.

Douglas Cram purchased this condo in 2006

Why Douglas Cram chose Utah

Best skiing in the world, and lots of great people here. Never really crowded and much warmer than the other side of the Rockies.

What makes this condo unique

proximity to the airport and the city are big factors, together with the fact that I can explore so many beautiful places from here.

Like staying at a friend's place

  • 5 of 5

I felt like a guest of the owner with all the thoughtful touches: ziplocs , plastic wrap, aluminum foil, real plates and glasses, sturdy pots and pans, cutting board and a sharp kitchen knife, comfy mattress, shampoo/conditioner, cotton swabs, cotton balls, body lotion.

When you're 30 minutes from the nearest market, it's great not having to bring these items, especially for a long weekend.

My sons and I had a great time spring skiing, enjoying club Solitude, and cooking dinner together.

Great ski condo

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this Solitude condo - it is exactly as described. The location is great with an easy walk to the lifts. The condo itself is well appointed and comfortable with a nice kitchen and new appliances. The bathroom is nice as well. The cable and Wifi worked perfectly. It really is best for 2 people or perhaps a couple with 2 children staying in the living room. We were looking for a quiet place and Solitude fits the bill - no loud crowds or partiers. The food choices are adequate for a few days stay but none of the restaurants have much character. Both St. Bernards and the Honeycomb Grill had good food at reasonable prices but not much ambiance. We did not eat at the Yurt. Cooking in the condo would be fine - just remember to pick up groceries down in the valley before ascending Big Cottonwood Canyon. The skiing at Solitude is excellent and varied though it might get boring after a few days and the lift system is not the most efficient. Of course Brighton next door provides another option nearby. Overall this was a great spot at a reasonable price.

We absolutely loved our stay. The condo couldn't be anymore convenient. The condo is also lovely and very well stocked!! We have a 4 year old little boy and he didn't want to leave. He loved the amenities at Club Solitude and his ski school.

Great Accommodations with updated amenities, easy access to lifts & village.

  • 5 of 5

Accommodations: comfortable, large enough for two, but three could stay here with no problem. Plenty of closet & dresser space for clothing. Kitchen had all one needs to prepare / serve meals - found space in kitchen more than adequate to prepare meals. Access to ski lockers was awesome; who feels like carrying skis farther than have to after full day of skiing. 1st floor accommodations also a big plus - easy in / out access!

We have skied at Solitude on several occasions, but never stayed in the village. If one has the option, I would recommend staying in the village to take advantage of the very easy access to lifts and fine dining facilities; though only a limited number of restaurants & no grocery store. Plan on purchasing groceries, wine, beer in valley before driving up to resort - will not find much to purchase at resort. Upon arrival, pick up a list of Solitude activities for the week - take advantage of such activities as pre-ski yoga, free ski demo day, movie night, kid's night, etc. If you are looking for a quiet & enjoyable ski getaway at a great ski resort, look no further!
