Vermont Ski House

Vermont Ski House


On a prime site in Stratton Mountain’s elite Tamarack Estates, this new 8,000 square foot ski house pushes against stringent design rules to break the classic ski “McMansion” mold, while paying homage to its New England locale.  The design blends two classic Vermont archetypes: the covered bridge and the field-stone wall.

Built as the winter hub for a large, active multi-generational family, the nine-bedroom house revolves around two grand spaces:  the great room on the main floor and the ski lodge on the lower level.  The dramatic double height great room features a heart pine timber structure, a towering stone chimney, and a wall of oversized windows opening onto a vista of mountains and ski slopes.  The ski-in ski-out lodge becomes a second living space, with stone fireplace, kitchenette, built-in cubbies, boot, ski board and ski storage. It is a place where family members stop in for a quick snack or hot cocoa between runs.
