SOLITUDE WILL POSTPONE OPENING DATE FOR THE 20/21 SEASON

November 9, 2020 (BIG COTTONWOOD CANYON, UT) — Solitude will postpone its opening day for the 20/21 ski season.

Solitude President & COO Kim Mayhew says: “Considering current conditions, as well as our goal of providing ample space for guests to distance from one another, we believe that a later opening date will create a higher-quality outdoor experience for our guests. We look forward to welcoming them to our slopes as soon as conditions permit.”

A new opening date will be announced in the near future, taking into account weather forecasts and snowmaking capabilities, and in conversation with the other Cottonwood Canyons resorts.

SOLITUDE ADDS DOZENS OF IMPROVEMENTS AND MODIFICATIONS AHEAD OF 20/21 SEASON WELCOMING SKI COMMUNITY BACK TO THE THRILL OF THE OUTDOORS
Scheduled opening date is November 20

September 14, 2020 (BIG COTTONWOOD CANYON, UT) — Solitude Mountain Resort is pleased to announce a broad array of initiatives intended to provide reassurance and healthful choices to its guests during the 20/21 ski season. Scheduled to open November 20, conditions and circumstances permitting, Solitude welcomes its mountain community back to enjoy outdoor recreation in the relaxed family atmosphere of Big Cottonwood Canyon.

Solitude President & COO Kim Mayhew says, “Throughout this longer-than-usual offseason, as Solitude skiers, snowboarders, and staff have looked forward to the exhilaration of winter, we have been working hard to understand and adopt best practices to prioritize the health and well-being of our employees, guests, and community.”

Among other upgrades, the Solitude website and added signage on site will always provide the latest information. Below is a summary of changes and improvements that guests can expect when visiting Solitude this winter.

As guests arrive, they will be able to pay for parking via touchless technology, including applying their carpool discount. Ikon Pass and Solitude season pass holders, as well as Solitude Ticket Pak holders, will be able to proceed directly to the chairlifts without stopping at a ticket office, while signage and staff will work to maintain appropriate physical distancing at all lift lines. Indoor facilities, public restrooms, guest shuttles, and staff vans will all be cleaned more frequently, including disinfection with electrostatic sprayers. Touchless faucets, soap dispensers, and paper towel dispensers in all public restrooms, plus hand sanitizer stations in strategic locations, will allow for effective personal sanitization with fewer points of physical touch. Additional, temporary public restroom facilities will be available at the Moonbeam base area to reduce queueing.

Guests will be asked to wear a mask properly fitted over the nose and mouth when indoors and when within 6 feet of other people, and Solitude will provide masks for those who forgot to bring their own. Employee uniforms will include protective gear appropriate to each team member’s duties, environment, and interactions with others.

For guests who wish to indulge in Solitude’s outstanding, chef-driven culinary landscape, outdoor seating will be expanded, including heaters in some areas. A greater variety of grab-and-go options will be available, and all dining and bar locations will limit capacity to allow for social distancing. The Solitude Village Store, in its new location on the main level of The Inn at Solitude, will offer take-and-bake family meals as a convenient option for lodging guests. New signage, dedicated entry and exit doors, reconfigured seating, and additional staff will encourage one-way flow and get guests back on the slopes with maximum efficiency.

The iconic and much-loved dinner experience of The Yurt at Solitude will take place in Solitude Village at St. Bernard’s Restaurant this year, allowing for greater distancing between tables, while still following the traditional pre-dinner snowshoe hike through snowy woods.

Inside rental shops, guests can expect a streamlined experience as Solitude staff use text messages to manage the flow of guests within the shop. Reservations will be required for rentals and lessons, and rental equipment will be thoroughly sanitized after each use, including disinfection with electrostatic sprayers.

For guests who will plan to stay on site, enhanced cleaning protocols have been developed for all lodging units, including disinfection with electrostatic sprayers following each checkout. Lodging in Solitude Village includes access to Club Solitude’s heated outdoor pool, hot tubs, game room, and exercise facility, now operating with metered capacity, time-designated reservations, and additional sanitization protocols to help prevent the spread of the new coronavirus. Solitude Mountain Spa will continue to welcome guests seeking relaxation with massage services only, face coverings required, and appointments spaced to allow for enhanced room and equipment disinfection.

SOLITUDE WILL OPEN FOR THE 2019/20 SEASON ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 29

November 18, 2019 (BIG COTTONWOOD CANYON, UT) — Solitude will postpone its opening day for the 2019/20 ski season to Friday, November 29, 2019. It had originally planned to open on Saturday, November 23, 2019, but recent warm temperatures in the region and a lack of early season snowfall have challenged the resort’s efforts to prepare its slopes for skiers and snowboarders.

Solitude President & COO Kim Mayhew says: “Based on the current forecast, we expect that our new opening date will provide the best mountain experience for our guests, and we look forward to welcoming them to our snowy slopes later this month.”

SOLITUDE TO ADDRESS AIR QUALITY, CONGESTION AND PARKING IN BIG COTTONWOOD CANYON
NEW GUEST LOCKERS | CARPOOL INCENTIVE | RIDE-SHARING APP | STAFF TRANSPORTATION
Ikon Pass holders ride the UTA Ski Bus for free

September 17, 2019 (BIG COTTONWOOD CANYON, UT) — In response to traffic and parking congestion in Big Cottonwood Canyon, as well worsening air quality in Salt Lake County, Solitude Mountain Resort is making a commitment to encourage carpooling and the use of public transportation when traveling to the resort. For the 2019/20 winter season, Solitude will be introducing a variety of initiatives to address these concerns while creating a more positive experience for guests.

“We are using every tool at our disposal to encourage our staff and guests to use public transportation and to develop carpooling habits,” says Solitude’s President & COO Kim Mayhew. “We are committed to reducing congestion in Big Cottonwood Canyon in order to preserve our canyon’s delicate environment.”

“Last winter was one for the record books, but there was some frustration around the number of cars on the road. We can leverage technology to cultivate a habit of carpooling and make public transportation more feasible. Our goal is to maximize the space we have and get everyone to the slopes safely and without delay.”

Parking Solutions
New for the 2019/20 season, paid parking will be implemented at Solitude’s parking lots with fees as low as $5 per day for multi-occupancy vehicles. Tiered pricing and preferential parking will be offered to encourage carpooling. To magnify Solitude’s actions in improving Utah’s air quality, a portion of parking proceeds will be donated to Breathe Utah, a clean air advocacy organization. Full details on the new parking system are available at https://www.solitudemountain.com/transportation.

Solitude will be utilizing a piece of their private property on the west end of the Moonbeam parking lot to accommodate approximately 200 more vehicles. These additional spaces will help ease parking congestion on Highway 190 near the resort as well as reduce erosion that can be harmful to the Salt Lake City watershed. The spaces will be served by a shuttle to move guests to and from Moonbeam Lodge.

Carpooling & Public Transportation Options
For guests who want to find a carpool partner, Solitude is investing in a ride-sharing app to allow skiers and snowboarders to share available space in personal vehicles by offering or joining a ride to Solitude. The app will include incentives for teaming up to reduce pollution and congestion. More details will be announced later this fall.

Solitude will lease four 15-passenger shuttle vans from the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) to transport staff seven days a week, taking up to 60 cars out of the canyon each day.

To make it easier for guests to use the UTA Ski Bus, Solitude has added over 100 new guest lockers, located on the ground levels of both Moonbeam Lodge and the Snowsports building. Solitude has long provided free UTA Ski Bus access to its season pass holders. That benefit has now been extended to all Ikon Pass holders for the entire season.

Solitude continues its long and productive relationship with UTA, advocating for expanded service and increased ridership in Big Cottonwood Canyon. In the past three years, UTA has increased Ski Bus frequency and made trips faster by consolidating and shortening routes. UTA Ski Bus now offers seamless transfers from TRAX, and park-and-ride convenience and capacity continue to expand.

Solitude plans to open on Saturday, November 23, 2019 – conditions permitting – and will close on April 19, 2020. Ikon Passes are on sale now at www.ikonpass.com.

IKON PASS ANNOUNCES THE ADDITION OF ARAPAHOE BASIN SKI AREA
IN COLORADO FOR WINTER 19/20
Ikon Pass Now Offers Access to 40 Global Destinations, Six in Colorado

DENVER, CO, August 2, 2019 – The Ikon Pass community continues to grow with the addition of Arapahoe Basin Ski Area in Colorado. Now Ikon Pass holders have access to snow at 40 global destinations, including six in Colorado.

A-Basin is located just 68 miles from Denver and boasts the longest season in Colorado, many seasons running through the 4th of July. Affectionately known as “The Legend,” A-Basin sits on the Continental Divide in the Rocky Mountains and offers a high-alpine, big-mountain

experience, paired with a laid-back atmosphere. Its 1,428 acres of iconic terrain includes the East Wall and Montezuma Bowl, plus The Beavers and The Steep Gullies, some of North America’s newest terrain. The Beach, a stretch of prime real estate near the lower-mountain chairlifts, transforms into a Colorado après tradition.

Ikon Pass holders will have seven-day access to A-Basin on the Ikon Pass with no blackout dates, and five-day access on the Ikon Base Pass, with selected blackout dates.
