The temperature today is in the 40’s and the snow is starting to melt. It’s challenging to build a construction project on a ski slope where you receive over 30 FEET of snow in one season! However, our dedicated team of sub contractors has persevered and we’re finally able to see the light at the end of the tunnel!
Ponderosa (the treehouse 10′ from the slope) is the closest to completion. The exterior cedar siding is almost completed, and it is gorgeous! Inside, the plumbing and electrical have been completed, the sheet rock has been hung, the fireplace has been installed, and, I’ve been working on the 600 fiber-optic stars in the ceiling of the turret. (I’m almost finished!) The radiant heat floors are being installed right now and the tile showers look beautiful! Another month and this chalet should be ready to photograph!
Tamarack (the middle treehouse) is about 2 weeks behind Ponderosa. Completion of Cedar (the largest chalet) will follow Tamarack.
It’s so exciting to see them coming together in such a beautiful way. For the first time since the start of this project, I can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel. This construction project has had its challenges with the rainiest October in 102 years and then more than 30 feet of snow, but we’re almost there.
BIG thanks to Tyler and Bear at Malmquist Construction for their expertise. We couldn’t have done this without you and your entire team. We’re already looking forward to the next project with you!
Thanks also to Les, Sean, Doug, Matt and Ed who have shared their time and talents with us. You guys have traveled this bumpy road with us and have always been there for us. THANK YOU! We’re so lucky to have you on this project!
Thanks also to the subcontractors who have made Snow Bear Chalets what it is. We’re very grateful for your help!
And to our future guests… just wait until you see the views from your own luxury treehouse, or experience the decadence of the sunken hot tub on the outside deck, or sleep in a plush bed cantilevered out over the forest floor, or relax under the stars in your own turret, just a few feet from the chairlift…. Snow Bear awaits you very soon. We look forward to hosting you during this summer season, for a glorious autumn getaway, or for the 2017-2018 ski season!
