This weekend I purchased sunscreen for my family on our way out for three hours of cross-country skiing. UV-B rays are just as intense in the winter and spring and can cause serious sunburn, we all should be very careful about being exposed unprotected to the sun for any extended period of time. And reflection from snow increases the risk of damage to your skin.
While I lather sunscreen on every exposed inch of myself and loved ones when we are heading out on the weekends. I realized I have been too complacent with my daily sun protection in recent months. I detest putting smelly facial creams on in the morning.
The solution? This amazing product, Eminences SPF 30 Sun Defense Minerals, which I found at the Spa at Stein Eriksen Lodge. The powder is hypoallergenic, easy to apply over my daily non-spf facial cream, loaded with vitamins, and available in six shades for added cosmetic coverage.

Stein Eriksen Lodge has offered guests ski valet services for the past 29 years. Our locker room is a mere 200 yards from the Sterling Express Lift at Deer Valley Resort in Park City, UT.
During the winter season it’s common to read guest comments like:
“This is my favorite service at Steins. The ski valets make the trip worth every penny. They are kind, considerate and seem genuinely gracious.”
“The locker room and ski valet staff are fantastic…The assistance with boot and skis, overnight boot drying, and related services went far beyond anything we have experienced elsewhere and made our trip all the more special.”
“ The ski locker staff is incredible, and for us, the ski valet services are what make Steins stand apart as a luxury ski-in/out property.”
After hearing guests rave about the service, I decided I needed to experience it for myself. To make sure I had the full experience I began with breakfast in the Glitretind complete with maple glazed bacon, salmon benedict and fresh fruit. Around 9am I strolled down from the Main Lodge to the locker room in my ski clothing and comfortable sneakers. The ski valets were ready and waiting.
Ryan greeted me and showed me to my locker where he assisted me with my boots. For anyone who has ever struggled trying to pull the tongue of a ski boot up and away from your foot while simultaneously pushing your foot down, this service is for you. In no time my boots were comfortably on my feet and Ryan was taking my skis and poles to the snow while I made final adjustments to my helmet and goggles. I made sure to apply a bit of sunscreen, provided at the valet desk, before heading out on one of the many blue bird days this season.
Ryan ready to assist me with my skis
Ryan brushed the snow from my boots and guided my foot into my binding. Two solid clicks later I was ready to go. I waved and thanked Ryan as I glided towards the Sterling Lift for my ski adventure.

Upon my return, Roger appeared with a big smile asking me how my day was. As I gushed about the grooming and the terrain, he gathered my skis and poles and placed them on the rack. He would later return them to my locker where they would be securely stored for the night.
I agree with our guests, these gentlemen represent the genuinely friendly nature of the Lodge. I am extremely proud to work for a property that provides this kind of service to all guests.

We are proud to included a new locally made product in this winter’s spa menu, particularly for manicures and pedicures. Salt Of The Earth, headquartered out of Salt Lake City, produces a line of custom salt and sugar scrubs, lotions and bath fizz. We chose this company because they share the same philosophy as The Spa at Stein Eriksen Lodge; to create experiences for our guests; to help people feel pampered, relaxed, energized, and refreshed.
The salt used in this line of products is produced through natural evaporation in shallow pools along the Great Salt Lake. It is then harvested, washed, screened and packaged in 40% recycled plastic containers.
“Salt is a simple mineral with an ancient history – a source of purity and balance used in every culture on Earth since before there was time! Salt of the Earth uses pure sea salt extracted from the Great Salt Lake, a remnant of one of Earth’s prehistoric lakes.” – saltearthspa.com
The Spa at Stein Eriksen Lodge chose six scents from the vast array of scents offered by the company; Bamboo & Teak, Cabana Boy (hints of coconut), Cool Water, Cosmopolitan, Juniper Black Currant and Thai Silk. During a treatment therapist literally hand mixes natural ingredients with essential scents to create products as unique as our customers. The spa also sells the pre-mixed salt scrubs, bath fizz and body crème in all six scents.

On July 17, 2010, Chef Zane and 30 of the top chefs from around the country are converging on Ohio to attend the 8th Annual Veggie U Food & Wine Celebration. Why? Because it benefits an organization solely focused on helping kids become healthy adults…Veggie U!
Veggie U, a not-for-profit organization at the Culinary Vegetable Institute, is committed to fostering a synergy between educational, nutritional and agricultural goals to combat the rising epidemic of childhood obesity. Veggie Ujoined forces with tops chefs, such as Holmquist, some of the area’s finest educators, a nutritionist and a local physician to see how the program could impact the childhood obesity challenge.
A group of area Master Teachers spent more than 18 months volunteering their free time to formulate a curriculum teaching an Earth to Table™ concept aimed at fourth graders. A kit complete with seeds, soil, flats, root view boxes, grow lights and a worm farm gives teachers needed materials for this hands-on study. These materials allow the student to see, hear, taste, feel and experience the process of planting, growing and harvesting a crop in their classroom. And the best outcome is the opportunity to eat their results!
It’s through fundraising events like the 8th Annual Food & Wine Celebration, as well as generous private and corporate donations, that Veggie U can continue to promote good eating habits for generations to come.
For over 25 years The Chef’s Garden has been renown for supplying the worlds best Chef’s and restaurants, including Chef Zane and the Glitretind, and now you can bring that reputation and nutrition home to your kitchen!

We were so honored to host the recent Smart Meeting Event at Stein Eriksen Lodge this week. Approximately seventy-six meeting planners and hoteliers gathered for the two and a half day event. The program included several great speakers, one-on-one appointments, great networking meal functions and an afternoon at the Utah Olympic Park complete with the Flying Ace Aerial Show. Participants also had the opportunity to try bobsledding, the world’s steepest zip line and the alpine coaster.
Most of the meeting planers and hoteliers had never been to Park City and were pleasantly surprised by our accessibility, beautiful scenery, weather, recreational options and meeting facilities.
We thank all the participants and Smart Meetings staff for a wonderful event and we hope to see them return to the lodge in the future.

If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of experiencing our newly renovated Norwegian spa, you’re in for an absolute treat. Part of the magic of the expansion to 20,000 square feet is in the layout. The natural beauty of cedar, pine and stone flows from the welcoming entry into spacious, meticulously detailed men’s and women’s locker lounges (each with its own steam, sauna, hot and icy plunges) to a series of cozy, accommodating spaces.
The women’s relaxation room is all warm earth tones, plush upholstery, and soft carpet with a soothing fireplace. Two private day-bed alcoves invite you to cuddle up and close the curtains if you like. The adjoining solarium is perfect for taking in the views or enjoying the perfect spa lunch.
We’ve also added a new hair salon and gorgeous pedicure room. Among our 16 new treatment rooms, we invite you to try the romantic couple’s treatment suite and two luxurious Vichy wet treatment rooms. In fact, now is the perfect time to try one of our signature spa treatments or packages.
