BIG COTTONWOOD CANYON — Solitude Mountain Resort is adding four extra days of skiing and snowboarding after it received a massive amount of late-season snow last week.

The resort officially ended its winter season Sunday, but it accumulated 25 inches of new snow in the past week. So, on Monday, Solitude announced Monday that it will give skiers and riders a few bonus days.

“We want to thank our community for their help in making this season a success," said Jeff Carroll, Solitude’s director of sales and marketing. "Skiing was a highlight of the winter of 20/21 for many — even more than usual — and with last week’s spring storm, we are delighted to offer four more days of fun.”

Two chairlifts, Moonbeam Express and Apex Express, will be open Thursday-Sunday (April 22-25) from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

These extra days are open to Solitude season pass holders, as well as Ikon Pass holders. Passes for both 2020-21 and 2021-22 are valid.

The resort is also offering discounted lift tickets. Single-day passes will be $49 for adults (ages 13-64), $39 for juniors (ages 8-12), $29 for youth (ages 5-7), and $39 for seniors (ages 65+). This is a discount of between 50-60 percent off normal window ticket prices, based on varying weekday/peak rates.

These prices are also eligible for 25 percent "Pass holder Friends & Family" discounts.

Parking, which normally costs between $5-20 (depending on how many people are in the vehicle), will be free during these bonus days.

Only the Moonbase area (Entry 1) will have amenities such as dining, retail and rentals.

  • Moonbeam Lodge: Grab-and-go food each day
  • Argenta Pub: Open Saturday and Sunday
  • Ski & Ride School: Private lessons only
  • Reservations required for rentals and lessons
