Yellowstone Club Rainbow Lodge Renovation

Just recently, Mountain Living Magazine came out with an article about the newly renovated Rainbow Lodge at Yellowstone Club  (see article here).  I was fortunate to shoot this renovation and see some of the photos appear in this Mountain Living article.  Rainbow Lodge is a beautiful, log lodge sitting halfway up Pioneer Mountain offering delicious food, a workout facility and pool, and a recreation area.  

I worked at Yellowstone Club for several years and, when I heard they were going to redo the lodge, I was a little nervous.  This was one of the first buildings built at Yellowstone Club and it was such a cozy space, though slightly outdated, I was worried it was going to lose its unique personality.  

The Yellowstone Club team did a fantastic job holding on to the intimate setting while more than doubling the size of the lodge.  They brought in larger windows and changed the colors of the walls from a gold-hue to grey.  When you walk in, it still feels like the old lodge but with a modern, updated look.  

The space was exceptional to photograph.  Not only is it sitting on a pretty spectacular site, but all interior elements have created a cozy and warm atmosphere.  The work by Yellowstone Club, Centre Sky Architects, Dick Anderson Construction, & Discovery Home Services was second to none. 

I love this shot of the front entry - a cozy space with modern touches.  The original entry was really crammed and always caused a traffic jam.  Opening the space makes the lodge feel more welcoming.

I was really impressed with the "sunken bar".  With the design you can sit and still enjoy the views of Lone Peak out the enormous windows.

Because of the structural remodel the original stone fireplace had to be torn down.  The YC team put a lot of effort to remake the new fireplace just like the original with stones from the site.
