In the fall of 2016 we broke ground on a very special project, that in keeping with our “bear properties”, we aptly named Snow Bear Chalets.
Snow Bear will be the world’s first slope side ski-in, ski-out treehouses! They are located on Hope Slope, just a few feet from chair 3, at Whitefish Mountain Resort, in Whitefish, Montana.
If you’ve been watching the web page or following us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, we’re sure you’ve seen our construction progress photos. This video is a bit different, in that it shows the progress from October through mid January, at a frame per hour (not counting the night time hours). You’ll see Ponderosa by the slope in the distance and Tamarack in the middle a bit closer to the camera. At the very end the view starts to be blocked on the left hand side of the lens, by the roof of Cedar.
You’ll see how our dedicated team worked through October (the rainiest October in more than 102 years!) and a very snowy December where we received more than 150″ of snow.
We’re excited by bring you these amazing treehouse chalets…. coming very soon! Now would be a great time to book an upcoming hiking holiday for this summer or grab a week now while you still can, for the 2017-2018 ski season before they’re all gone!
