In order to play at the Snow Mountain Resort, you have two options. You can pay $10 to take a lift up to the mountainside where the course is located. Otherwise, you could get into the course for free by hiking the mountainside.

The Solitude Mountain Resort course starts off at 9000 feet. Something to consider is that there are also high winds at this course. This is definitely not a course for beginners and is not recommended for the faint of heart. You will need your wits to battle the winds if you want to hit par.
