Welcome to our little piece of Solitude. We recently purchased a condo at the Solitude Ski Resort which is located in Big Cottonwood Canyon about 30 miles from downtown Salt Lake City Utah. The resort has the feel of a quaint little European village, and averages around 500" of snow per year. There is fun to be had year round however, and we have created this blog as a means of sharing all the great things Solitude has to offer. We hope you'll follow us as we inform you about current conditions and events in the canyon. If you'd like to experience it all for yourself feel free to contact us and reserve your spot at our condo. I know you'll love every minute of your time spent there. Thanks!

A Colorful Oasis
I think if I had to describe what real beauty is I'd have to use the word nature at least once or twice. Driving up the canyon these last few weeks has been absolutely breathtaking! Its a multitude of colors and textures that blend together to make the most beautiful symphony the eyes have ever seen.

As we've enjoyed all our condo has to offer these last few weeks I think my favorite thing has just been the sheer beauty and solitude you are completely surrounded by. We swam in the pool almost everyday...and usually had the pool all to ourselves. It was amazing just sitting in the hot tub surrounded by trees that are brilliant yellow and orange intermingled with evergreens that smell of the crisp freshness of nature. We went for walks and talked about the excitement winter will bring when we can ski down those hills together. We watched movies every night, and laughed and played with all those that we love. That was our weekend. It's what dreams are made of.
