SolVista Basin

  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 area has a much lower than average proportion of expert and advanced runs and a much higher than average part of blue and green trails. 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. The 1,000 feet of drop from top to bottom is rather acceptable; SolVista Basin makes excellent
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 a ride with. SolVista Basin has a good array of runs; it wonít leave anyone bored. A glorious workout and getting out of the house for a while attract folks from far and near. This ski hill has 37 slopes that you can ski on; there's a pleasant range to please everyone. This ski mountain has 406 acres of skiing area, and it's all in fine condition. You might be into skiing or snowboarding, or both, doesn't matter, this is an area with a load of sites for that. In winter the Colorado mountains are always glorious for snowboarding or skiing. No deficiency of fine hotels, but if you donít have reservations, you may well end up slumbering in your automobile. Winter in the mountains of Colorado and the good sense of coasting down the runs are certain to keep you coming back. SolVista Basin is a good place for everybody with plenty of easy runs. Skiing and snowboarding here in Colorado is a lot of fun the whole winter season.
