Birch Hill Ski and Snowboard Lodge at Ft. Wainright

Ft. Wainright, Fairbanks, Alaska

Stellar worked with design partner Design Alaska to reimagine Ft. Wainright’s Ski and Snowboard Lodge with a new 12,244 SF lodge that accommodates ski training and rental of ski and snowboard equipment for military members and their families. The exposed wood truss great room features a large fireplace and offers spectacular views of Birch Hill. Additional amenities include lockers, full-service kitchen and dining area.

The facility’s subfloor is supported by 12” steel piles that were placed 100’+ into the ground. The second story accommodates a mechanical mezzanine and equipment platform. The mechanical room accommodates two boilers (652,000 BTU) and there’s a new 1,000 GPM pump house and 60,000 gallon fire water storage tank.

This project won a Pyramid Award from the First Coast Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors.
