Big news for Utah ski fans: Deer Valley has agreed to purchase Solitude Mountain Resort and will begin operating the resort as of May 1, 2015.
Starting this season Deer Valley, which is home to luxe properties St. Regis Deer Valley, Montage Deer Valley and the Stein Erikson Lodge, will begin offering reciprocal lift benefits with Solitude. Season pass holders will gain access to four days of skiing and midweek pass holders will get two days. Midweek pass holders must use the exchange Monday through Friday. Holiday restrictions apply.
For the upcoming 2014-15 ski season, Solitude will operate as usual under the leadership of the DeSeelhorst family. Select Deer Valley staff will work alongside Solitude staff during the next six months to evaluate resort operations and gain knowledge about the Solitude brand and culture. Deer Valley will then take full ownership of Solitude Mountain Resort on May 1, 2015.
