Ski Facilities

Ski resorts have unique requirements when building their ski facilities. They are often located in remote areas with difficult terrain and considerable wind and snow levels. They also have to be well insulated to keep their clients comfortable while maximizing energy efficiency. Sprung structures meet and exceed all of the requirements needed in a ski facility.

Sprung structures do not require traditional foundations, so they can be quickly and easily built in remote areas. Specifically engineered to withstand high wind gusts and shed heavy snow loads, Sprung structures are made highly durable for combatting winter climate and weather. Energy-efficient insulation packages are also available providing superior climate control.
