Stein Eriksen Lodge Celebrates History of Elegance
30th Anniversary Nears, Lodge Pays Homage to Namesake
PARK CITY, Utah- As Stein Eriksen Lodge's 30th Anniversary approaches, the hotel pays homage to its namesake, legendary Norwegian ski champion Stein Eriksen. The patriarch of elegant skiing, Eriksen successfully combined his passion for skiing with a desire to develop an internationally renowned luxury hotel. Since opening in the early 80s, Stein Eriksen Lodge has provided the highest caliber of service to its guests. The Lodge has been recognized as one of the finest mountain resorts in the world, garnering some of the industry's most prestigious accolades, such as Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamond.
"Stein changed the face of alpine skiing in the US," said Russ Olsen, CEO of Stein Eriksen Lodge. "He challenged himself to master the art of alpine, and with that, his style of skiing became legendary and his persona larger than life. Stein parlayed all that he knows and loves about skiing into an incredible career and set the foundation for a hotel unrivaled in the world."
To accomplish his vision for the Lodge, Eriksen and business partner, Edgar Stern, traveled extensively to luxury ski hotels throughout the world, many which Stein's family frequented during his childhood. Distinguishing itself from other properties, Stein Eriksen Lodge has, in spades, what many ski hotels lack: personality.
The Lodge's abundance of charm comes from a wealth of custom-made unique touches. From hand-painted Rosemaling (a form of decorative flower painting that originated in the low-land areas of eastern Norway), custom millwork, and original artwork in the common areas and guest rooms to the hand-crafted bar and elaborate trophy case which houses Stein's 1952 Olso Olympic Medals. Stein Eriksen Lodge maintains the heritage of its namesake with an inviting and elegant atmosphere that elicits a sense of belonging in its guests.
Along with boasting 180 finely appointed rooms (68 of which are suites), amenities at the ski-in/ski-out property include full-service concierge, ski valets, ski locker room, twice daily maid service, rental shop, boutiques, the award-winning Glitretind restaurant and the Four Star, #1 Resort Spa in the Continental United States, as ranked by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler.
The Forbes Five-Star, AAA Five Diamond Stein Eriksen Lodge is one of America's premier resorts and a member of the exclusive international association of independent luxury hotels and resorts, Preferred Hotels & Resorts Worldwide. Providing guests with the ultimate year-round luxury destination, Stein Eriksen Lodge offers world-class skiing during the winter and biking, golfing, shopping, horseback riding, swimming, tennis and fishing during the summer. Guests can also be rejuvenated year-round with treatments from the Mobil Four-Star rated Spa at Stein Eriksen Lodge.
