Davidson Hotels & Resorts Tapped to Manage Snowpine Lodge

Lifestyle and Luxury Division Pivot Hotels & Resorts Selected to Operate Upscale Ski-In/ski-Out Utah Resort With Roots Dating Back to 1800s

USA, Atlanta, Georgia. June 02, 2020

Davidson Hotels & Resorts, one of the nation's leading full-service hospitality management companies, announces the addition of the Snowpine Lodge to its expanding portfolio. Situated slopeside with unparalleled access to Alta mountain Ski Area in Alta, Utah, the resort features 54 luxurious guest rooms and suites; 14 deluxe dorm beds; Stillwell Spa; more than 10,000 square feet of flexible indoor/outdoor event space; two unique dining experiences; a fully stocked game room; a mountain-side pool and hot tubs, fitness center and yoga studio; outdoor firepits; ski lockers and Utah's oldest ski shop, the Deep Powder House Ski Shop. The resort is operated by Davidson's lifestyle and luxury division Pivot Hotels & Resorts.

"As avid outdoor enthusiasts with extensive resort experience, we are honored to welcome the Snowpine Lodge to the Pivot family," said Thom Geshay, President, Davidson Hotels & Resorts. "The unique history of the town and the overall development provides us with rich storytelling opportunities that we can use to create memorable experiences for our guests."

The Snowpine Lodge is both the newest and oldest building in Alta. The original structure was erected when mining was the primary industry within the Albion Basin. J.G. Stillwell, manager of Emma Mine, converted the building from a general store to a post office in 1878, where his son continued to run the operation for more than 40 years. In 1938, the Snowpine Lodge was given its current name and declared a skier's lodge. After a complete rebuild, the property reopened its doors in January 2019 with the mission to reflect the charm of the past while embodying a tasteful, warm elegance.


"Pivot has had tremendous success with independent, lifestyle and destination resort properties, thus instilling a high level of confidence in our family's selection," said David Pratt, Partner. "Alta is an important part of our family, not just for our love of skiing together, but dates back to when my great, great grandfather, Swen O Nielson, worked in Alta's Emma Mine in the late 1800s -- the restaurant is named Swen's in honor of him. The Snowpine Lodge is more than just an asset to our family, it's our deep-rooted legacy. We are confident that in Pivot, we have selected partners that will be true stewards of this establishment that continues to shape Alta history."

Guest Service: Health and Safety First

Though expectations are that hotels will return to some semblance of normalcy in 2021, their highest priority must continue to be the health and safety of guests and employees. To that end, hotels are training their guest service personnel in enhanced cleaning routines, which include the following practices - bathrooms, elevator buttons, remote controls and other high-touch items, are disinfected and cleaned with a higher frequency; all tables, chairs and menus in restaurants are cleaned at a much higher frequency, and after each seating; floor markers in public areas to remind guests and team members to maintain physical distance; hand alcohol stations and disposable gloves in lobbies and restaurants; loose items such as pens, note pads and information material removed from rooms and meeting rooms; limiting the number of seats in restaurants and public areas; and revised food & beverage offerings. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will review how guest service personnel are being trained to maintain health and safety protocols in their operations.
