About Shiloh Powers

I am a General Contractor. I have been blessed with a beautiful wife and 3 wonderful boys. I have spent my life designing and building homes like the one you see here. My goal in life is to create as many great memories with my family as possible.

Now Enough about me, lets go ski!

Shiloh Powers purchased this lodge in 2015

Why Shiloh Powers chose Utah

For the last 10 years I had been searching for the perfect location for a family vacation home. In 2014 I accidentally came across the most perfect lot in Big cottonwood canyon. It was covered with aspens and pine trees and was tucked away in the corner of the subdivision. Due to the dense trees and deep snow I could barely see the sign showing it was for sale. In fact I had to purchase snow shoes just to inspect the property, so I came back another day. After checking out the killer lot with incredible views I decided to go on a walk through the forest. Within 2 minutes (on snowshoes) I stumbled across some skiers that were skiing at Solitude Mountain Resort Solitude. They had been taking a back country run that came down just above the lot I was checking out. I followed them and within another couple minutes I found myself at the ski resort and partially up on of the ski runs. I have to admit that I was blown away. I though was it really possible that there was a ski in lot available in Big cottonwood canyon? Well there was, and it gets better! After some further research, not only was the lot secluded but it adjoins forest service land, it has year round access, sits at the trail head to the resort, and has a gentile slope from the resort to the cabin down a set of telephone lines. Officially, Mind Blown! Lots in this area almost don't exist (not to mention its the closest lot in Silverfork to the resort) and if they do they rarely come up for sale. Unless... the lot was not really buildable. Well since it obviously has a home on it now I won't keep you in suspense. The county officials approved the lot for building, I whipped out my hammer and started building, and the rest is history!

What makes this lodge unique

Because I am a licensed general contractor no detail was left out. In fact I spent 8 months hand crafting almost every detail with my business parter. With surprise features around every corner, you will really not find another place like it. We put careful thought into making sure it would accommodate guests adequately as we knew we wanted to share this place with others. It really is just to special of a location not to share. With that said I am pleased to invite you to rent our dream home/cabin/lodge whatever you want to call it. We call it Silpow Lodge. Please call with any questions.

Mountain Gem in the Wasatch!

  • 5 of 5

An extraordinary home, impeccably designed, comfortable, clean with spectacular views of the mountains! This was the perfect place for my family to gather this summer and enjoy time together in the mountains. Shilo was quick to respond and the most kind & generous host! For our family, it was the perfect summer get away! Close to day hikes, mountain drives and relaxation!

Beautiful property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We used this home as our base for skiing in Utah. Great location and amenities. There is nothing lacking in this property.

Tucked back in the woods in Big Cottonwood Canyon adjacent to Solitude and Brighton Resorts.

45 minute drive to Park City and Alta and Snowbird. World class skiing. This was our 4th trip to Utah and this was the nicest, best located home that we have stayed in. We will be back in 2017.

A piece of heaven in the canyons!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed this cabin SO MUCH. We were amazed by it's beauty and the careful attention to the steel and wood theme throughout. Great care was taken in the designing and decorating details. I loved cooking in the gourmet kitchen, and everyone also enjoyed the use of the hot tub. The cabin was quality in every sense!!

We also loved the huge glass windows with lovely views - a mountain peak with fall colors and then a light snow storm on another day - such a beautiful setting. We also took advantage of going on a nearby hike - there are many trails within a few minutes drive (or even just walk over to the Solitude area). The location was perfect for us as locals - close enough to have a couple in our group run to college classes and then return, but far enough up the canyon to feel removed from busyness and be immersed in the peacefulness of the mountains.

Shiloh was delightful to work with - so excited about sharing and ready to make it work well for us. We would love to return to this incredible home-away-from-home again! It became a favorite spot for us!!!

Gorgeous Views, Brand New Amenities, Wonderful Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

My group stayed in this cabin over the weekend in order to attend a wedding in the area, and I will say that it was the perfect location and set up for our crew. Shiloh was very responsive and helpful all weekend long. Even though the weather was a bit crummy (rain), between the hot tub, the fireplace, the board games and the amazing entertainment system we had plenty to do in the cabin and were totally comfortable the entire time. We had a wonderful vacation and would recommend this property to any large group or family interested in the area!

Really.... It's that good!

  • 5 of 5

This review is tough to write. On the one hand I want to write about just how incredibly good this place is. On the other, I don't want to tell a soul. As a local, this is one of these places that far surpasses anything we have stayed at in recent years. Shilo is an amazing host. The property is perfection. Every detail, the way the space is laid out is incredible. We have four boys and our parents came up as well for a night making eight of us. Plenty of room. Just to the east side of the property are trails leading to Solitude. If you are looking for a place to get away or want to ski in ski out. This is truly a gem!
