Solitude Mountain Resorts Ink RCI Deal

Solitude Mountain Resort (Solitude) and RCI Resort Management (RCIRM), today announced an agreement for RCIRM to assume responsibility for management of all lodging operations, including condominium rentals, for The Inn at Solitude and the resort’s homeowner associations. RCIRM is expected to begin operations by December 16, 2002, to ensure a seamless transition for the resort’s bookings, lodging reservations and winter operations.

“RCIRM’s expertise in resort management will bring great service and efficiency to Solitude Mountain Resort and our condominium owners,” said Dave DeSeelhorst, vice president, Solitude Mountain Resort. “Their nationally recognized consumer rental program brings new distribution channels and will undoubtedly generate higher occupancy rates for our resort, and we are excited about having them onboard.”

Under the terms of the agreement, RCIRM will be managing the consumer rental program for the resorts condominiums as well as assuming the management of the Eagle Springs East and Creekside Condominium Associations. Additionally, RCIRM will be responsible for the property management as well as all sales and marketing efforts for the 40 hotel rooms and meeting space for the Inn at Solitude.

“Our success as a resort and hotel management company are completely dependent upon the satisfaction of guests, owners and developers,” said Ricardo Montaudon, vice president, business development and acquisitions, RCI Resort Management. “We’re pleased to be providing Solitude Mountain Resort with our comprehensive resort management services and we are committed to reaching that satisfaction by helping reduce costs, provide higher quality resort services and add value to all parties involved.”

The Solitude Mountain Resort in Utah has taken new shape over the last few years. What was once a local’s day area has become a full-service mountain village boasting spectacular scenery and uncrowded terrain. Six new lodges are all warm, expansive and designed to pamper and relax. The resort now boasts savory restaurants, a wonderful market, and the traditional on-mountain eateries.


Beyond the village, the mountain offers something for everyone with eight lifts, 64 named runs and three expansive bowls. Especially new is the Honeycomb lift, offering limitless terrain options in a pristine backcountry canyon environment. Solitude is located just 12 miles up Big Cottonwood Canyon and is know for its 500” of annual snowfall.
