With 6,000 square feet, this new construction two-story lodge of heavy timber anchors into the mountainside. With 12 foot open beam ceilings, a central hearth, cold roof system to prevent hazardous icicles, wide overhangs and double pane windows, the rustic lodge symbolizes skilled handiwork, energy awareness and functional high mountain design.
The upper level offers warm, dry, comfortable seating for up to 75 people; rest rooms, a fireplace, and a full-service kitchen, along with the best views on the mountain. The lower level provides rest rooms, lockers, waxing benches, and space for renting equipment and selling passes.
Frontier Point functions as a year-round education center, offering a pathway to wilderness experiences and recreation.
