A-Basin Children’s Center & Ski Patrol

Keystone, Colorado

2014

The Arapahoe Basin Children’s Center opened in 2013 providing the ski are with a 2-story children’s activity and learning center as well as a new homebase for the mountain’s ski patrol. The new ~4,500 sf building also anchors a new ‘courtyard’ space created between the upgraded ticket center and the existing A-frame lodge. The lower level entry for ski patrol allows separation between the kids center which has entry/exit uphill on the second floor. Sustainable design parameters focused on reducing energy demands through space and envelope optimization and integrating solar power through roof mounted photovoltaics.
