|Components:||Master Planning, Site Design|
Corvus Design worked with the private lodge owners of Tsaina Lodge to develop a master plan that addresses their new lodge building near the top of Thompson Pass. The site master plan focused on creating a world-class heli-ski resort during the winter season while accommodating summer backcountry tourism groups as well. Located in the Chugach Mountains just northeast of Valdez, the lodge is off-grid and receives extreme amounts of snow, making planning for outdoor activities and maintenance somewhat unique. The building has been completed, and the intent is that the site will be further developed in future phases.
