“Very close to lifts, but limited facilities and dining in the "village" - skiing / boarding on the mtn however is GREAT!”

Powderhorn Lodge
Reviewed 1 January 2013

We stayed at Powderhorn condos before New Years We had a one bedroom, with two pull out couches. Couches were typical sleeper sofas, and overall the room was moderate size - nothing fancy, kind of on par with a holiday inn. Parking is underground, and provides decent access. It is practically ski in ski out - about a 3 min walk to the lift. Beware there are no ski shop facilities on the mountain if you want to buy skis, boots, bindings etc and you can get cheaper lift tickets in town (i.e. SKI and SEE). They do have some clothing etc in the village stores, but it is limited. Everything is rental. Also, your choices of dining are also limited, and rather expensive and there really isn't a grocery store - but if you head down the mtn you can find the super target. It's about a 30 min drive down from the canyon into town, but it's a mtn drive that might be tough if it is snowing. Would I stay here again? Perhaps, but it's not much of a "ski village" - if you don't like sleeping at altitude, want to save a ton of money, it might be better to just stay in Sandy, UT and drive up during the day.

We stayed at Powderhorn Lodge #405 for the last week of the 2012 season. The location would probably be great during the peak season, but for us the ski school was closed and I am not sure I saw more than 2 or 3 people in Powderhorn the entire week. The restaurants are close and all had good food. Club Solitude is in the next building over and was nice for the kids to do some swimming. Our condo was nice, clean, and had everything we needed. We stayed in a 1 bedroom with den. The den had two single beds and it was tight, but ok for our 11 and 9 year old girls. I don't think I would put teenagers or adults in that room. The tv's were new flatscreen plasma/lcd and had dish network. The kitchen had all the utensils and kitchenware we needed. Bathrooms had soap, shampoo, toilet paper and tissues. I can tell you it was hot and our heat was never even turned on. Fortunately we could open the windows to cool it off. I am not sure this location could ever be considered ski in/out. With a lot of snow you may be able to pole in, but the entrance is probably 200-300 yards from the Apex lift. All in all we had a good stay and for the price we very happy.

The Powderhorn is a great place to stay. The people are fantastic; location is perfect; restaurants within walking distance were very good; ski rental and ski school employees were superb...warm, friendly and professional.

Room Tip: All rooms are in great location.

The location is spectacular - ski in/ ski out. The bar closes at 9:00 p.m., so there's no nightlife. Kimi's Restaurant was excellent - great atmosphere for after skiing and dinner. The food is contemporary and very good! We took the shuttle bus to the Moonbeam Lodge and took the bus, then the train to Salt Lake City for $3.50. The train stops running early, so we took Canyton Travel traansportation back for $36.00. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir practices on Thursday nights at 8:00 p.m. -- free and open to the public. This is a must see--something you'll never forget!

I spent 5 days at the Powderhorn Condo at Solitude with my two adult children. The accomodations were very nice, the village charming and quaint and the snow was the best we have ever experienced. It was easy to return to the condo for lunch and you could leave the condo 5 minutes before dinner reservations and be at either St. Bernard's or the Creekside restaurants on time. If you are looking for a great place to ski...for a family vacation or a romantic getaway you cannot go wrong at Solitude. The resort is deserving of its name.
