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 our picturesque patio with lunch classics as well as distinctive flavors. Don’t forget to add a traditional mimosa or 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 variety and challenge yourself while enjoying our breathtaking natural surroundings that continually change throughout the spring, summer, and fall. Mountain bike rentals are available Thursday – Sunday from the 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 The Sweet Lillies, Megan Blue, and many more! Check our events calendar for the full lineup of music and summer activities.
Play our 18-hole disc golf course
Host of the Professional Disc Golf Association’s annual Solitude Open, our 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 Fri-Sun), and then drive, chip, and putt your way down. Disc golf rentals, instructions, and scorecards are available from the 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 a limited number of mats are available to borrow for no charge.
Explore the Natural World
Join Solitude’s resident geologist and astronomer, Rodger Fry, to study the rock formations and the 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 our events calendar for dates and times.
Catch a classic flick
End your summer day enjoying a classic crowd-pleaser on the big screen under the stars. From Jurassic Park to Sister Act, Coca-Cola Sunset Cinema serves up nostalgic action, romance, and comedy. This will occur each Thursday from June 30, 2022 through September 1, 2022. Admission is free. Check our events calendar for the full lineup.
