Being suspended from a cable is an experience usually afforded only to window washers and to the custodians who have to repaint Mount Rushmore "rock color" every year. Dare to dangle with this Groupon.

While the Sunrise lift climbs nearly 1,000 feet, take in views of the Wasatch Mountains and Big Cottonwood Canyon speckled with towering pine trees. From there, ride the lift back down or disembark at the top to hike the mountain's trails. Customers can upgrade to an all-day lift pass for an additional $10 per person at the ticket window.

Solitude Mountain Resort
Although more than 500 inches of snow blanket Solitude Mountain Resort's 1,200 acres every year, the cluster of rolling peaks and canyons aren't for skiing alone. Sure, during colder months, 65 designated trails host prime skiing; but in the warmer months, the mountain transforms. The resort's Sunrise chairlift hoists passengers nearly 1,000 feet over the summer foliage of the Wasatch Mountains, revealing the bare splendor of the Honeycomb Canyon—some of the mountain's most vertical terrain—and the Nordic Center, where all the mountain's Vikings live. And without skis, nature explorers can journey along 20 miles of single-track trails on rented mountain bikes or hybrid mountain scooters.
But the mountain is just one part of Solitude Mountain Resort. At its base sprawls the European-style stone-and-timber Village, a rustic hotspot of lodging, nightlife, spa services, and cuisine.
