Deer Valley ski resort in Utah has bought nearby Solitude Mountain Resort and plans to inject a raft of upgrades before the 2015-16 ski season.

Solitude is a smart, car-free ski area linked with Brighton in the Big Cottonwood Canyon in Utah, next to Snowbird and Alta. The resort has eight chairlifts, 65 runs, three bowls over 1,200 acres for skiing and snowboarding.

Deer Valley’s first plans for Solitude include the installation of a new detachable high-speed quad in place of the current Summit double chairlift and the creation of a new piste from the top of the existing Apex Express chairlift to the bottom terminal of the realigned Summit Express chairlift which will reduce the current travel time to Honeycomb Canyon.

The resort says “priority improvements” for Solitude includes the remodelling of Moonbeam Lodge restaurant, an increased guest service presence throughout the resort and new uniforms for Solitude staff.

“This is an exciting venture for both Solitude Mountain Resort and Deer Valley Resort,” said Kim Mayhew, new general manager of Solitude Mountain Resort.

“As a member of the Deer Valley team for more than 30 years, I look forward to sharing with Solitude Resort similar values and practices that make Deer Valley one of the best operated resorts in the country.”
