10 WeatherPort® Shelter Systems for Ski Resorts

Whether you’re expanding your ski resort or improving your facilities, WeatherPort Shelter Systems™ has versatile fabric buildings that are proven in cold, snowy climates.

WeatherPort tensioned membrane structures are designed for portable use or permanent applications. They meet local and international building code and are independently tested and certified for snow loads and wind loads. WeatherPort building solutions are also easy to install without foundations and can be taken down quickly and put into storage for seasonal use. Here are 10 portable shelters for ski resorts.

Covered Walkways

Welcome guests with a covered walkway from the parking lot to your ski lodge or any other area of your resort. WeatherPort Jubilee Series tents and GB Series gable-style buildings are available in a wide range of widths and can be built to any length and height. You can include sidewalls for added shelter from the elements.


No matter the size of your dining facility, with buildings up to 150’ wide and any length, WeatherPort has a fully engineered structure to meet your needs. The DAGB Series truss gable building is ideally suited for large dining halls. HGB Series heavy gable buildings up to 30’ wide are great for cafes and concessions.

Your guests can swim year-round in one of our attractive pool enclosures. Our fabric buildings do not need foundations for safe installation, making them quick to assemble, and they can be disassembled and stored with ease, making them ideal for seasonal use.

Popup Rental & Retail Shops

Maximize sales and rentals with our portable shops in a wide range of sizes, styles and configurations. You can choose from displays that are ideally suited for use as kiosks or larger buildings that can act as standalone shops. We can add custom logos and graphics to our durable fabric membranes to grab the attention of potential customers and raise the brand awareness of your products. Our fabric buildings were used for retail applications at the Olympics in Salt Lake City.

    Magic Mountain is what skiing the east is. Bumps, ice, rock, jumping logs, narrow trees (only MRG compares). Out west normally has such great conditions that it makes skiing easier. You find a good skier when they can ski in rough conditions. And just like any resort in Vermont, Magic Mountain can get a little icy. This is a fun place to ski that reflects what the east is about.

    I am interested in the approximate cost of a 40′ x 40′ structure for a ski area to be used as a locker room.
