Adrienne Aldous Skiing at Solitude Ski Resort

Adrienne Aldous Skiing at Solitude Ski Resort

This is a picture of my first day of skate skiing this season.

The Solitude Nordic Track was empty but for me and the big blue sky. Just Little Redman and Big Redman loops were open and it is a good thing because they kicked my heini. Next time will be easier. Need more snow and conditions.

Solitude Ski Resort 12-inch Report

Monday, December 14th, 2009

 
Weather at Solitude Ski Resort:
Snow in the forecast – get your boards waxed!
Misc & Events: We open for winter Nov 13 – conditions permitting.

Are you aware of avalanches?
It’s dumping the “Greatest Snow on Earth” at Solitude!

With the snow piling up and backcountry season in full swing, there’s never been a better time to join Solitude’s Professional Ski Patrol and Snow Safety team for their Avalance Awareness Clinic, December 19-20.

Focusing on how to travel safely and responsibly outside resort boundaries, this two day course is a great introduction to the identification of avalanche hazards and the skills needed to safely travel in the backcountry.

Learn how to identify avalanche terrain, analyze snow and weather factors and manage group dynamics. Plus, gain valuable knowledge concerning avalanche rescue skills. After an avalanche presentation on the morning of day one, the rest of day one and two will be spent in the backcountry putting these concepts into action.

Don’t miss this great opportunity! Spots are limited so sign up quick!

New October Snow on Brighton Ski Resort – Thanksgiving Ski Home Rentals Still Available

Sunday, November 1st, 2009

Jay and I hiked up to the top of Majestic lift yesterday and did a little skiing. What a way to embrace winter. For October 31st, the snow was quite good and abundant. Thinking we were doing something unique and on the edge, we soon realized it was NOT. There were many people already there in T-shirts and shorts (quite a bit younger I might add) doing the same. If this is any indication, we are going to have a terrific ski season at Brighton and Solitude Ski Resorts.

To make things a little easier on your wallet during these challenging economic times, we’ve cut our ski home rental prices dramatically.

Utah Summer Skiing?

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

Enough already.  Brighton Ski Resort closed last week and we got another 10 inches of snow.  Can someone tell whomever is in charge to knock it off?

Utah Ski Season Comes to a Close

Sunday, April 19th, 2009

Last day of skiing today and what a way to end the Utah ski season.  The Brighton Beach Bikini Bash was a hit yesterday with skiers getting more than a goggle tan line if you know what I mean.  We are finally getting those great spring skiing conditions.  It seems only right to be skiing in shorts the last day of the season rather than skiing knee deep in fluffy powder like we did last week.  This season, Brighton Ski Resort had a total of 581 inches of snowfall beating last years’ total.  This translates to full reservoirs this summer.

Easter Skiing at Brighton Ski Resort

Saturday, April 11th, 2009

Has Mother Nature forgotten what month it is?  Brighton, Utah has received over three feet of snow in the past ten days.  The snow conditions are about as good as they have been all season long and the resort closes in a week.  Again light fluffy powder in April is unheard of but much appreciated by those of us who are here to enjoy it. Easter skiing will be amazing this season.  Hope the Easter Bunny can make it up the Canyon.

April Fools

Wednesday, April 1st, 2009

Snow Snow Snow! NO, this is not an April Fools joke. Here it is April 1st and we just received 9 inches of snow. Is this an April Fools joke? Nope. I had probably the best powder day in April I can ever remember. It was the light and fluffy kind not the wet cement kind, and the lift lines were nonexistent. I guess everyone is playing golf somewhere else. Our guests are so happy. Our group staying in Great Western said, “This is why we come to Brighton”.

Evening Sleigh Rides at Boulder Mountain Ranch, Park City, Utah

Wednesday, January 14th, 2009

Some of our recent guests had rave reviews on their experience taking an evening sleigh ride. I thought I would pass on the details if anyone else is interested in enjoying this unique and memorable experience. Boulder Mountain Ranch in Park City, Utah offers 30 minute rides for $100 up to 5 ppl and $25 per person if you have more than 5 people in your group. Visit their website at www.bouldermountainranch.com . Rocky Mountain Sleigh Company offers dinner with their rides at $79 for adults and $59 for children 3-11 yrs old. Check out their dinner fare at www.rockymtnrec.com. While you are at it you might as well look into the tubing offered at Gorgoza Park www.gorgozapark.com . That is a favorite with my kids. You take the lift up effortlessly with an enormous tube and glide down to the warming hut to hot chocolate and snacks. It is totally decadent. Tubing rates for 2 hours are $10 (3-6 yrs) and $20 (7+ yrs).
