Kick, Glide and  Repeat

Created for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, Soldier Hollow Nordic Center boasts some of the best trails for skate and classic Nordic skiing in the country! Soldier Hollow welcomed the world for the 2002 Winter Olympics as the host venue for Cross-Country, Nordic and Biathlon events. On a recent, bluebird day we did our best to unleash our inner Olympian :) 

It is the only Biathlon course in Utah available to the public and to this day, Soldier Hollow continues to be great teaching and training grounds for beginners and experts! 

Just down the road from the home of the US Ski & Snowboard Team, the Nordic Center at Soldier Hollow has the latest and greatest Rossignol gear to rent for your outdoor activity! Snowshoes, classic, and skate skis are available, along with poles and boots to fit all sizes. Rental rates are $20 for adults, and $10 for ages 12 and under. Nordic Trails are open daily from 9:00am to 4:30pm. Day passes are $10 for adults, and $5 for youth. Enjoy the trails limitlessly all season with a Soldier Hollow Season pass for $225 for adults and $75 for kids 12 and under. About 25 km of open trails are currently ready for heart-pumping cardio! Check the nordic trail conditions for updates! 

Classic Cardio

Two of my friends and I signed up for a classic ski lesson with one of Solider Hollow's instructors. All three of us girls are seasoned alpine skiers, so it was a fun challenge to test out the skinny skis! It was a beautiful day and we had a wonderful workout outdoors! Along with the nordic trails, Soldier Hollow has a groomed tubing hill open for action! With a new conveyor lift system, winter tubing is in full force! Fun for the whole family, Soldier Hollow has the longest tubing lanes in Utah! Come during the day with beautiful views of the Heber Valley, or ride at night under the lights! A built-in sound system keeps the party going during the excitement of snow tubing!

Have a large group event you need to plan? No problem! Host your next birthday party, corporate event, or group gathering at Soldier Hollow Nordic Center, where you can participate in a variety of activities! Let your guests decide between cross country skiing, a biathlon experience, snow tubing, and more! Weddings or retreats can also be hosted at Soldier Hollow Lodge.

We had such a fun time working on our balance and strides during our nordic ski lesson at Soldier Hollow! There were few falls and many laughs! With snow making abilities, Soldier Hollow is a beautiful place for outdoor recreation and family fun to enjoy all winter long! And a big thanks to Elevate Your Dream for the video footage and photography.
