full-service rustic, Douglas fir day lodge offers ski rentals, souvenir
and logo items, accessories, and food and beverages. Massive, weathered
trestle beams are a grand feature of the lodge interior, as are
the floor-to-ceiling glass windows, which provide spectacular views
of the Wasatch Mountains, Heber Valley, and the cross-country trail
system. The Lodge can be reserved for festive occasions year-round.
The Lodge at Soldier Hollow is built
primarily with timbers from the Lucin Cutoff, a railroad trestle
that crossed the Great Salt Lake. Construction of that trestle started
in 1902. The trestle was a critical part of the nation's rail system
until the 1950s, when it was replaced by a solid material causeway.
The salvage rights are held by Trestlewood, based in Orem, Utah.
