Solitude has picked up over 293 inches of snow this season, giving us a great start to 2023. It’s a proper Utah winter, with snow canyons forming between the buildings in our Village area and great conditions on the slopes. 

Kicking off the new year, we’re proud to announce recent upgrades to one of our signature restaurants, The Yurt. We’ve changed the interior décor and pushed the kitchen back from its original location, creating more room for guests and tables. The Yurt is tucked in the trees just off the lower part of the Sunrise lift. 

Dinner at The Yurt is a unique dining adventure. Most guests arrive on snowshoes, escorted by a guide through the neighboring forest. The moonlit forest is magical in winter, so don’t miss out on this special experience! You can also walk directly from the village on a groomed path, and if you’re looking for extra assistance, we’ll give you a quad ride. Once seated, guests enjoy five delicious courses prepared by Chef Ben and his associates. The meals are hearty and warm — perfect after stepping in from the cold. The Yurt now has a full bar license, too. Enjoy a selection of beer, a wide range of cocktails, and wine by the glass or bottle. 

Dinner at The Yurt is served Wednesday through Sunday and reservations are required. Book through our website to reserve your seats.  If you’d like to book the entire Yurt for a private party or event, contact one of our reservation agents directly. 

New this year, the Yurt will now be open for lunch! Making its debut over the Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, the lunch menu will be more casual than our multi-course dinner experience. Stop by on your skis or board for stews, side salads, and cocktails. Then depart the same way you arrived and continue to shred. Dine indoors or enjoy the outdoor fireplace that we are installing soon. Reservations are not required for lunch. Check our website or app for scheduled days and hours. 

Keep in mind that there is no running water at the Yurt, with a portable restroom available outside. 

Some other news for the new year: January is the National Ski Areas Association Safety Month. This is a great time to refamiliarize yourself with the Skier Responsibility Code as well as Park Smart guidelines for the terrain park. Keep an eye out for events on the mountain dedicated to mountain safety. Let’s all stay safe on the slopes! With that in mind, make sure to yield to oncoming traffic and look uphill when heading over to the Yurt this winter!
