Olympic Hillside

In 2002, Soldier Hollow hosted the world’s top Nordic skiers and biathletes in the Winter Olympic Games. The facilities that hosted the world in 2002 still serve the area today. Sound system, time clock, scoreboard and extensive infrastructure allow Soldier Hollow to host the event’s sheepdog trial like no other. The Olympic hillside boasts unsurpassed sight lines, and uneven hillside terrain to test the best of dogs. Trees, shrubs and even a pioneer cabin beckon to wary sheep who see potential refuge in every obstacle. There are no fences at Soldier Hollow and sheep have been known to escape into the dense foliage above the trial field. In it’s first year, Bobby Henderson called Soldier Hollow one of the finest sites for a sheepdog trial in the world.
