site of a small Native American encampment (and later, in the
1850’s, a stopover for a group of Army surveyors), Soldier Hollow
emerged from obscurity in the winter of 2002 as the immensely
popular site of the Olympic cross country and biathlon events.
Soldier Hollow also hosted the cross country skiing portions of
Nordic Combined, and in March of 2002, held the cross country
skiing and biathlon events for the Paralympics.
Having clearly established Soldier Hollow as a world acclaimed
facility, the Olympics also provided Soldier Hollow with an
infrastructure that could not only host future elite competitions
such as National Championships and World Cups, but could also stage
a wide range of events.
Since the closing ceremonies of the Olympics and Paralympics,
Soldier Hollow has continued the legacy of ski racing and biathlon,
playing host to the Under 23 World Championships in 2004 and U.S.
Championships in 2005 and 2006.
Soldier Hollow is also home to the Soldier Hollow Classic Sheepdog
Championships, Intergalactic Tubing Championships, and Herber Valley
A wide range of events –youth and family friendly – is a hallmark of
Soldier Hollow. It’s all part of the Legacy.
