The trails offer a good variety for skiers of all levels. About half of the available trails are suitable for intermediate skiers, with beginner and advanced trails available. There are four lifts that provide easy access to the trails. These lifts normally open at 9 am and close at 4pm, although exceptions are made for night skiing, snowboarding and tubing.

A terrain park is provided, with sections for snowboarders who have varying skill levels. A total of five progression parks are found in the terrain park area, so there is literally something for everyone. One of the features that provides a challenge for snowboarders is a former fuel tank that features two quarter-pipes.

Night skiing, snowboarding and tubing at SolVista Ski Resort are some of the most popular activities offered during the winter months. This is a truly unique way to experience these winter sports. Night sessions are offered on Saturdays, with tickets available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Newcomers to winter sports will be glad to know that skiing and snowboarding lessons are offered. Both group and private lessons are available to suit differing needs. The classes have been found to be very effective for children of all ages. Many families take the classes together. The Harald Harb Method, which uses a combination of shaped skis and special body movements, is taught here.

Guests who need access to equipment can easily rent what they need from the shop at the Base Camp Lodge. The skis and snowboards are from some of the finest brands. The shop's staff can easily assist with fittings to make sure you have a good fit. Jackets, goggles and other items are always available for sale.

Several types of lodging are available. You can stay in ski-in, ski-out facilities near the base camp with one to three bedrooms and standard amenities. Families can benefit from staying in condos, and a full-service hotel is available. The Base Camp Lodge has a casual, family-style grill on the second floor.

There are several unique opportunities available during the summer. The nearby River Camp offers furnished tents for those who would like to camp. Its Fraser River location is ideal for fly fishing. If you like to hike, over 600 miles of trails are available. Cyclists have access to bike trails, as well as a bike park. An 18-hole golf course, considered to be one of Colorado's finest, is here.
