What’s in a name? In the case of Electric Pass Lodge, a new development comprising 53 two- and three-bedroom ski-in/ski-out residences at the base of Snowmass Ski Area, the name celebrates a design that’s completely powered by renewable energy.

“We set out to design not only a contemporary, Scandinavian-inspired alpine lodge, but the most sustainable, all-electric condominium building in the Colorado mountains,” says Christian Barlock, principal at 4240 Architecture, which collaborated with interior design firm River + Lime on the project. Upon its anticipated spring 2023 debut, “Electric Pass Lodge will set a new standard for the future of building design in Snowmass and hopefully for ski resorts across North America.”

A combination of a rooftop solar array and off-site renewable electricity will power the building, which includes a health club, lounge and ski locker room. Triple-pane windows, robust insulation, phase-change ceilings that retain and release heat, and a mechanical system that pre-heats or -cools incoming fresh air will all minimize the structure’s energy appetite while keeping residents comfortable even on the coldest winter days.
