    The Utah mountains are spectacular in the Fall! Don't miss the SOITC Western Regional rally in Heber City, Utah, at the #1 rated Mountain Valley RV Resort! At  only 5600 feet elevation, the weather is temperate this time of year with easy access to the yellow aspen and red scrub oak of the high country!

    Accommodations match the spectacular scenery. This resort was rated #1 by USAToday as the "Best Luxury RV Resort in the US" in 2020.  You will find this big-rig super-friendly resort just off HWY 40 in Heber City, located in Northern Utah just 45 mins east of Salt Lake City, 20 mins south of I-80 (Park City) and 30 mins east of I-15 (Orem). Open year-round and sheltered by the stunning Rocky Mountains of the Heber Valley, it offers the absolute best in full-service RV lifestyle and accommodations.

    Starting with rally registration and social time to renew old friendships and begin new ones on Sunday, October 1, we have fun activities planned all week.  Some of the group activities include train rides on the Heber Valley Railroad and an artisan cheese tasting. Itinerary

    Sign up for the Train Trip with SOITC!

    Based on your feedback, we have provided ample "on your own" time to take advantage of all this area has to offer.  Some of the most popular venues in and around Heber Valley include: Homestead Crater, Historic Main Street in Park City, Mirror Lake Scenic Byway (sure to be a hit with our FullHouse members), Timpanogos Cave National Monument, Jordanelle State Park (a favorite for dark sky viewing) and visits to nearby Salt Lake City and its Mormon legacy. 

    Activities in the area are almost too many to list and include world class fly fishing, hot air balloon rides, horseback and ATV trail rides, golfing surrounded by breathtaking scenery, visits to Sundance Ski Area for a ride to the top of the mountain, and of course, leaf-peeping the Aspen fall colors.  For more details on the area and activities please follow this link: Activities in Heber

    Rally registration for SOITC members is $65 per rig with 2 people so don't miss this party! Sign up now for the fun week in the Utah mountains. Those who are not SOITC members are a little higher and are more than welcome! Consider joining SOITC now for the lower rate!

    SOITC is coordinating with the Mountain Valley RV Resort to manage campsite reservations.   We ask you to provide your campground arrival and departure dates when registering for the Rally and we will collect and forward that information to the resort.  In the event you wish to camp next to friends, please advise and we will try to manage that request.  

    All of the blocked sites are long, pull-through, full hook-up paved sites and grouped closely together in three rows.  As this time is still part of the resort's high season, we appreciate that they have agreed to honor last year's weekly rate for our event. Once sites are confirmed, the resort will reach out to you directly to confirm payment information. Rates are $528/week or $92/night. You do not need to contact the resort to make reservations. Toll-Free: 1-855-901-6100 or Local: 435-255-3514.

    Deer Creek Express

    This approximately 90 minute trip offers incredible views of the Wasatch Mountains, the wide-open vistas of Deer Creek Reservoir, and the beautiful Heber Valley. The Deer Creek Express departs from the depot, follows the shores of Deer Creek Reservoir to Decker Bay (about 7 track miles), and returns. 

    The railroad is operated much like the typical short line railways that could be seen in many parts of the Utah and all over rural America during the “Golden Years” of U.S. railroading, approximately 1920-1950. As such, the Heber Valley Railroad attempts to preserve a slice of Americana that has otherwise disappeared. The train ride and atmosphere of the railroad equipment, yard, and building will hopefully recall a bygone era. For many passengers this will be the first time they have ridden a train. For others, a ride aboard the Heber Valley’s coal-heated coach cars and antique cabooses will bring back pleasant memories of days long ago.

    Snacks are available for purchase in the depot prior to boarding and on board the train. 

    In order to ensure that the train will have adequate space to accommodate our entire group it is necessary for us to reserve and pay for everyone at least sixty days in advance.  For that reason, we ask that you register and pay as early as possible.

    The cost is $22.50 per person and is discounted for us from the standard $25. 

    NOTE:  Active duty U.S. military and card-carrying U.S. military veterans ride free on all scenic trains (Provo Canyon Limited, Deer Creek Express, & Lakeside Limited). Immediate families are 50% off. Please call the ticket office for this special.  Please identify as travelling with our group to ensure being seated in our car.

Sevierville is just off Interstate 40, near Knoxville.
