It looks great but I miss the old style. The old style felt more like a ski lodge.

I LOVE it! Looks so much better! I never was a huge fan of the red wood. Always looked beat down to me🤷.

Great job! Love it!

Can you please post a photo of the mountside of the building?

Hope you have an openhouse!

Looks awesome.

Nice. I'm excited to see it in person.

Looks great!

Oh....I miss the red!

Looks awesome

This was the first place I went snowboarding in 8th grade. Nearly ran into the lodge because I was still learning how to stop!

Beautiful😁

It looked much better with the wood style. That style fit in with the ski area. I don't think this fits at all. Wayyyyyyy to modern yo

It looks so modern now 😔 I miss the red wood.

Looks great

Looks very nice

Miss the red color too

Looks like storage unit
