Cypress Nordic Ski Area Cabins

ARCH 540

Removal of the historic Hollyburn lodge at the cypress nordic ski area and the rebuilding of a similar-looking new cabin is the inspiration behind the design of a new identity for the nordic area with a faceted a-frame style set of cabins built from CLT panels. The design encompasses three specific sites: ski area entry with ticket office, ski and snowshoe rental, and nordic cafe; the existing Hollyburn lodge location with a main warming hut, sauna and public washrooms; and a caretaker’s cabin, along with a upper warming hut at a higher elevation.
