You will find some of the best tree skiing, straight shots in beautiful gullies that you may think you went to heaven, and some vertical that may make your tummy churn. No, it is not the length of Alta or Snowbird,or even Park City, but the snow is always better and there is NEVER a CROWD any day. It is the prettiest terrain in the Wasatch and unlike Alta and the Snowbird canyon you do not have to do the slow crawl down the road forever, Big Cottonwood Canyon and Solitude do NOT have those problems. That in itself is a huge plus trust me.
I came from working in Stowe, Vermont, to work at Solitude for one year in 1991, and never went back. I do not work there now, but still love it.
Like most visitors, you need to "SKI THE FREEDOM". Just don' tell any one when you go home. It will be the people already there, and now you too have the SECRET.
ENJOY and I will show you around but I know "FAST TRACKS" will do a better job.
Sorry for the ramble.
I worked at Solitude on the Patrol and know that the Patrol has a program called "Back Tracks" that will take you just out of the resort to ski some great terrain and I am sure you can get one of the guides to show you around the area of the mountain complex.
