Summer at Solitude Mountain Resort is a magical getaway — whether you live in the Salt Lake Valley or travel here from afar. Here are a few can’t-miss summer activities to keep in mind as you plot your escape.
Lunch at Honeycomb Grill
Start your day in the mountains on an appetizing note at the Honeycomb Grill. Ease into the weekend on the picturesque patio with lunch classics and distinctive flavors. Get adventurous with a refreshing Main Street mule or mouthwatering Creekside old fashioned.
Mountain biking is the perfect way to access remote corners of the great outdoors and cover lots of ground. It’s also a fantastic workout — but don’t let that scare you! Hit the trail and explore over 20 miles of single-track and forest roads at Solitude. Experience a variety of alpine landscapes and challenge yourself while enjoying the breathtaking natural surroundings that continually change throughout the seasons. Mountain bike lessons and rentals are available Thursday – Sunday at Moonbeam Base Area.
Live music à la mode
On Sunday afternoons, grab ice cream from Stone Haus and settle in on the Village Green for some live entertainment. Bring your own blankets and chairs, or dance along to the tunes of Michelle Moonshine, Megan Blue, and many more! Check the events calendar for the full lineup of music and summer activities.
Play the 18-hole disc golf course
Host of the Professional Disc Golf Association’s annual Solitude Open, the 18-hole course is open to the public and free to use seven days a week. Hike to the first hole or treat yourself to a scenic chairlift ride (available Thursday – Sunday), and then drive, chip, and putt your way down. New to the game? get started on the beginner-friendly 9-hole course at the base of the mountain. Disc golf rentals, instructions, and scorecards are available at Moonbeam Base Area and Powderhorn Adventure Center in Solitude Village.
Mountain yoga near Salt Lake City
Start your weekend right by stretching and strengthening in the fresh mountain air each Saturday morning (conditions permitting). Yoga takes place on the lawn of The Inn at Solitude. There are even a limited number of mats available to borrow at no charge.
Solitude Aventure Park
Climb up, flip out, and jump around in the Solitude Adventure Park. Located between Solitude Village and the base of Sunrise Lift, the climbing wall, bungee trampoline, and bounce house are great ways to spend the day enjoying the mountains from a different perspective. All three activities are included in the Adventure Park Pass for participants ages 4 and up.
Solitude Mountain Mining
Grab a bag of paydirt from Canyon Fever and sift for precious gems and minerals. Sluice box mining is located at Moonbeam Base Area, fun for miners of all ages.
Explore the natural world
Join Solitude’s resident geologist and astronomer, Rodger Fry, to study the rock formations and heavenly constellations that surround us at Solitude Mountain Resort. On selected Saturdays, Fry guides guests on an informative lift-served geology hike around the resort. A lift ticket or pass is required to participate in the full hike. When the nights get shorter, guests are welcome to peer through high-powered telescopes aimed at notable celestial objects. This all takes place on the Last Chance lawn near the Apex Express chairlift. Bring your own blanket and settle into marvel at the night sky. Check the events calendar for dates and times.
Catch a classic flick
Finish your summer day enjoying a classic crowd-pleaser on the big screen under the stars. From Jurassic Park to Space Jam, Coca-Cola Sunset Cinema serves up nostalgic action, romance, and comedy. This will occur each Thursday from late June to early September. Admission is free. Check the events calendar for the full lineup. Don’t forget to save your sweet tooth for a root beer float!
