|| || Save time and money and avoid Solvista for skiing. Has potential as the mountain is friendly to new skiers but the amenities leave a lot to be desired. Lack of parking and or shuttles and no room to relax as the lodge reminds me of a cross-country ski shelter. If you can pack a BBQ in the car that would be your best bet for warm food and a place to sit down. Says Tony Rankin.|
this is a great resort for teaching the young ones how to ride. the staff
did an excellent job in teaching my two kids. Says diggity.|
Sol Vista is a tiny mountain compared to the other ski mountains nearby. It does have it's charm though. It's a good place to learn before you hit the bigger resorts
|nearby. Says Daniel.|

This ski resort has a decent range of trails and an acceptable pick of different ski lifts. This is a small-size ski area having a small altitude difference if compared to other US Rockies ski hills.

use of it all. The annual snowfall is approximately average at SolVista Basin. The fantastic 18 feet of seasonal snowfall is sufficient for extremely splendid coverage. This ski mountain has 6 ski lifts, and they are cool to catch
