Light steel structure with coat from corten and glass stands on a stone podium, which “anchors” the building to the slope in 3000 metres above the ground. Toilets for skiers, mountain rescue office and cafeteria are hidden inside. The stone is from local sources and its raw surface reminds small floes during months with no snow.
