Some of the people behind the social media groups opposing an expansion project at Holland Lake Lodge say they worked very hard to not allow threatening language and they dispute any allegation of “death threats” directed at the lodge’s owner. They also dispute the notion that they profited off merchandise sales.
Last week, the Missoulian reported that Holland Lake Lodge owner Christian Wohlfeil is withdrawing his applications to the U.S. Forest Service to upgrade the buildings and will be offering Holland Lake Lodge for sale for $3.5 million. Wohlfeil is ending his partnership with POWDR, a Utah-based ski resort company.
Scores of Swan Valley community members packed the Swan Valley Community Hall to comment on the Holland Lake Lodge proposed expansion on Oct. 4, 2022. The meeting was held by officials with the Flathead Forest Service and members of POWDR, one of the largest ski resort operators in North America, to address public concern about the addition of new restaurant, lodge and cabin buildings at Holland Lake Lodge in the Swan Valley north of Missoula.
