The total area is 20 K of groomed and tracked trails.
In early season, this is reduced a bit, and will expand as snow levels allow.
Type of Recreation:
- Cross country (both classic and skating)
The snowshoe trail is separate from the skiing trails. If snowshoers want to travel in an area where
there is a groomed ski trail, they are asked to walk off the groomed part, on the snow.
Getting between the Resorts:
The Solitude Shuttle Service is included in the price of your Nordic Center ticket. Park either at
Solitude (Village or Moonbeam) or the Silver Lake Visitor's Center and take the shuttle from any of these stops.
- Snowshoe or ski around a groomed trail system through the beautiful forested area between Brighton Ski
Resort and Solitude Ski Resort.
- The easiest way to ski is to park at the Solitude Village parking area and just ski around the Redman campground
(this is the main part of the trail system). Or, park at Silver Lake Visitor's Center, and just ski around the lake.
- For a little harder route, head uphill toward Brighton for some more terrain (or park at the Silver Lake Visitor's
Center and ski around the trails up there, then ski on down to Solitude). This option includes a rather long,
uphill grade from Solitude to Brighton (downhill the other way). But it is a good workout if you are so inclined.
- Or take advantage of the shuttle service (only available during the full season--not open in early, pre-season)
or lift pass to cover even more terrain.
Snowshoers (or skiers) who want to hike any of the backcountry trails in the area whose trailhead is at
Silver Lake (except Silver Lake itself which is part of the trail system) may still do so without having
to pay a trail pass. Just be sure not to linger on the groomed trail, or stray from the intended hiking trail.
The trails are policed and if you are using the trail without paying, you will be fined. Also, be aware
that the Forest Service could shut down backcountry trails if there is avalanche danger.
