Quite Possibly the Platonic Ideal of the Rocky Mountain Ski Lodge

Looking for inspiration for your own private Rocky Mountain getaway cabin? Nine thousand feet above sea level? Taking notes from the area’s history of mining? 

We have it: the Lodgepole Retreat, an award-winning design from Boulder- and Denver-based architecture firm Arch11

If the corrugated metal siding — which recalls the local industry — doesn’t do it for you, the floor-to-ceiling windows, with killer views of the surrounding slopes, definitely should. 

Have a look — and then figure out where you’d like to build your own piece of heaven.
