Mt. Rose’s New Winters Creek Lodge Now Open
Lake Tahoe, NV- Mt. Rose will open the New Winters Creek Lodge for the 2009/10 season. BSA Architects of San Francisco have designed a modern facility with a contemporary style that will be the first of its kind in Lake Tahoe. Located on the southeastern-most edge of the Slide Bowl, the new building is based on a style popular in Europe, which brings the valley architecture into the mountains. The glass façade of the lodge will bring the mountain into the area, creating a warm and special feel for what has become coined the “locals” side of Mt. Rose.
The new Winters Creek Lodge is 7865 sq. feet and constructed mainly of glass and steel. Replacing the former lodge, the positioning of the new lodge will lend itself to a more conducive guest area, providing improved traffic flow from the slopes to the lodge as well as to the Blazing Zephyr loading zone.
A modern kitchen inside the Winters Creek Lodge will bring signature food service by new Mt. Rose Food & Beverage Manager Thomas Monarrez including Panini sandwiches, homemade pasta dishes, custom burgers, multi-grain pizzas and tasty wraps. The cozy Sky Bar provides a relaxing feel with an incredible panoramic view of Washoe Valley and Washoe Lake 4,000 ft. below. The new Winters Creek Lodge will accommodate around 150 patrons inside and 400 people on the deck. Complementing the beautiful indoor experience will be a 7,623 sq. ft. outdoor deck providing expansive seating with an inviting atmosphere. The new Winters Creek Lodge is the perfect place to take a ski break in the winter or hold an event, party or wedding any time during the year.
Panattoni Construction is selected as the Winters Creek Lodge contractor. Incorporated in the design are smart technologies making use of passive solar mechanisms to maximize the efficiency of the building.
