Description
A 35,000-square-foot, three-story, wood- and steel-frame, stone- and wood-clad, metal-roof, 32-room hotel with spa, restaurant, bar, meeting rooms, sundecks, porte-cocheres, and a 20,000-square foot, concrete-frame, subterranean garage.

Approach
The owner desired luxury accommodation and meeting facilities on property adjacent to ski slopes. Needed were a sense of permanence and history, convenient access for guests, and low maintenance. Straightforward forms culled from classic lodge architecture and authentically detailed, heavy-timber framing lend imagery while separate porte-chocheres provide access for cars or skiers. Responsible use of materials addresses the climate.
