The lift installation is going according to plan. Actually, we are a bit ahead of schedule. The trail grading is complete, which will really change the way the mountain skis. The areas in the photo that are that bright yellow / brown color is the area that has been worked on. Basically what you see is a nice smooth run that has a consistent grade down the mountain. What used to be in that same location was a large flat spot that led up to a steep drop-off. With this small transformation Solitude has made this central “heart” of the mountain much more conducive to the abilities of newcomers to the sport. Add to that high-speed access via the new Moonbeam Express & Apex Express and you have one of the state’s best learning areas becoming even better.
