Schaffer’s Camp, Northstar at Tahoe Ski Resort

This 12,000 sf restaurant and 7,000 sf deck is at an elevation of 8,000 feet in a remote part of the Northstar at Tahoe ski resort. It received LEED certification.

“Your team smoothly mastered one of the most challenging projects we have completed to date. We had several unique obstacles to overcome: a short construction season due to the elevation, transporting crews and materials to a remote site on a ski mountain, and following strict environmental controls. Finally, your team installed many unique materials used to comply with LEED certification with precision and skill.”
– Darrell Linscott AIA, Faulkner Architects
