Yodeler Lodge

Holiday Valley Resort

This project was planned to provide an improved base facility for a popular portion of the resort. It was also planned to serve as a four-season facility, used in the non-ski seasons as a meeting facility and for wedding receptions. Food preparation facilities and a “scramble” type food service area with a featured open-hearth pizza oven provide a unique dining opportunity. A number of artifacts from the original Middle Chalet, including a wrought iron chandelier and light sconces, were saved and re-used in the new facility.

The elevations of the two main floors were designed into the ski slopes to allow for ski-in and ski-out at both levels, and to provide for adequate staging areas for winter activities. Heated deck areas are designed for all-season activities and to minimize damage to the interior finishes by removing snow, mud, etc. from ski boots. The Lodge’s windows and roof overhangs were carefully designed to allow winter sun into the lodge, while shading the interior during the summer months. The pallet of materials and design details common to Holiday Valley was utilized, with a central, multi-opening stone fireplace and chimney as a central feature.
