SOLITUDE MOUNTAIN RESORT

EVER SINCE AN EARLY AGE, I'VE ALWAYS BEEN CONNECTED TO SPORTS.  SINCE I CAN REMEMBER, I'VE PLAYED THE NORMAL TEAM SPORTS AS A KID.  I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO CONTINUE PLAYING BASEBALL THROUGHOUT COLLEGE AND EVEN AFTER.  ALTHOUGH MOVING ON FROM BASEBALL, I STILL PLAY ICE HOCKEY & ENJOY EVERY SECOND OF IT.  


BUT WHAT DRIVES ME IS THE PASSION AND NEED TO BE OUTDOORS.  I TRULY BECAME ADDICTED TO SNOWBOARDING EVER SINCE THE DAY I TRIED IT eight YEARS AGO.  IN DOING SO IT DRIVED ME TO TRAVEL ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND EXPLORE AN UNKNOWN TERRITORY.  SNOWBOARDING WAS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM THE SPORTS I WAS USED TO.  BASEBALL AND ICE HOCKEY HAVE RULES.  IN SNOWBOARDING THE MOUNTAIN IS YOUR DOMAIN AND THE ONLY RULE I'VE TRIED TO FOLLOW WAS NOT GET INJURED IN THE PURSUIT OF SPEED.


AS SNOWBOARDING TOOK ME TO NEW LOCATIONS, THE PASSION TO DO OTHER THINGS HAS GROWN.  HIKING, CAMPING, MOUNTAIN BIKING, PADDLE BOARDING, AND RAFTING ALL SEEMED OBVIOUS FOR ME TO TRY.  SINCE MOVING TO SALT LAKE CITY, THE OUTDOORS HAVE SIMPLY BECOME A LIFESTYLE.
