The Story

The Story

Hi, I am Wes, chief cook and bottle washer at the Atomic Chalet.  Because of its unspoiled beauty and idyllic ski conditions, Huntsville and the Ogden Valley have become my home. My inspiration for a bed & breakfast chalet comes from the European Alps and in particular the ambiance of small Italian pensioni. 

Eric Peterson from Frommers Guidebook wrote."Growing up in the shadow of a nuclear power plant in San Clemente California gave Wes the inspiration for the chalet's name, but his experience as a pro-volleyball player in Italy and Switzerland inspired its style and service. The Atomic Chalet, which opened in 2000 and housed the U.S. Ski Team during the 2002 Winter Olympics, is a two-story, cedar-clad lodge with a pool table in the parlor and a hip sensibility throughout. The four rooms have one king-size or queen-size bed, plus a ladder up to a loft with one or two twins. The soft color scheme accents unfinished pine furnishings, marble-laden bathrooms, and nice mountain views."

I take a lot of pride in the chalet since I designed and built the place practically myself. Since the millennium, I have enjoyed providing a relaxing and casual environment for guests. Keri and I invite you to come and discover the serenity of the Ogden Valley and the pure skiing at our vast ski resorts.
