Northstar, Star Kids Ski School

Northstar-at-Tahoe Ski Resort, Placer County, CA

The Starkids Building is home to the junior ski school at Northstar-at-Tahoe Ski Resort. The structure is situated at the bottom of a beginner ski hill on a bank that allows for ski school access at snow grade on the upper level and at grade access below for the instructor and staff facilities. The double pitched shed roof formally responds to the slope of the land, opens views uphill onto the slope, gathers solar heat and light, as well as creating a safe zone on the ski hill side free from possible snow slides off the roof.
