T-Bar Hut


Peak 8,
Breckenridge Ski Area, Breckenridge, CO


The T-Bar Hut is a prime example of sustainable design. At over 11,000 feet in elevation, this structure is one of the highest in North America. Specific design solutions involving the solidity of construction and resistance to harsh elements were incorporated to build a shelter that will last many generations. Home to Ski Patrol and shivering skiers, it has proven to perform as designed, providing a warm and comfortable spot to readjust to the climate.


 Construction lasted two years with supplies being brought up only during winter months via Snowcats. Thereby minimizing impact on the fragile high alpine environment. Local materials were used in an effort to emulate the surrounding mountain landscape. Heavy timbers and rough stone provide the makeup of the chalet perched at the top of Breckenridge Ski Area.
