Whether you’re expanding your ski resort or improving your facilities, WeatherPort® has versatile fabric buildings that are proven to withstand extreme cold climates. They’re independently tested and certified for snow and wind loads to meet local and international building codes at your resort.
Our tensioned fabric membranes combined with lightweight aluminum frame systems are engineered to be tough and designed with portability in mind in order to combat tough winters. During off-season, the structures can be easily transported out of the resort for safe storage.
WeatherPort building solutions are also easy to install and anchor into any ground type, including thick snow, and can be used for either temporary, semi-permanent, or permanent applications.
Here are 10 portable shelters and products for ski resorts.
1. Covered Walkways
Welcome guests with a covered walkway from the parking lot to your ski lodge or any area of your resort.
WeatherPort Jubilee Series tents are available in 15’, 16’, 20’, 21’, 26’, 30’, 35’ and 40’ widths, and our GB Series buildings are available in 8’ to 20’ widths, any length, and 5’ standard eave heights.
You can include sidewalls for added shelter from the elements.
2. Dining Facilities
If you have a large number of people to feed and provide seating for at your resort, our DAGB Series of truss gable buildings is fully suited for large dining halls. They can reach standard widths of up to 150’, customized widths of up to 200’, and any length.
Our Heavy Gable Buildings (HGB Series) can reach up to 30’ wide and work great for cafes or concessions, where fewer people are present.
3. Equipment Storage
Choose from a selection of door packages, including equipment and personnel doors to make storage and transport as easy as possible.
4. Event Tents
Whatever event your ski resort plans to host, WeatherPort has professional-looking event tents to fit the ambience and atmosphere of your party.
Our four-sided canopy tents are great for smaller numbers of people and are available in the following sizes: 10’ x 10’, 10’ x 15’, 10’ x 20’, 12’ x 12’, 16’ x 16’, and 20’ x 20’ canopies.
Hexapae six-sided shelters are available as 16’ or 30’ diameter canopies.
Octopae eight-sided shelters are available as 35’ or 40’ diameter canopies.
You can add sidewall or end-wall curtains to any of our field-tested event tents in a wide range of colors.
We offer a range of options and amenities, including Alaska environmental control units (ECUs™), plug-and-play electrical systems, flooring systems, decks, beautiful window packages, and more.
6. Maintenance Shops
Get the floor space you need for repairs and fabrication with our field-tested maintenance shops.
WeatherPort fabric buildings feature open span frame systems that don’t require interior support columns, so there’s no wasted space for your equipment and tool or table setups.
You can add equipment doors to allow easy access for machines, materials and supplies. And if you choose our plug-and-play designs, your workshop will be ready for use, including power tools and more, as soon as it’s installed.
7. Pool & Spa Enclosures
Your guests can swim year-round in one of our high-end pool enclosures.
Our fabric buildings don’t require heavy-duty foundations for safe installation, allowing for quick assembly as well as efficient storage due to our low-cube packaging. You can easily store them away if you only want them out during particular seasons.
8. Popup Rental & Retail Shops
Maximize sales and rentals with our portable shops available 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 act as standalone shops. We can also add custom logos and graphics to any shelter so your shop grabs the attention of potential customers, raises brand awareness, and sells more products.
9. Starting Gates
WeatherPort Starting Gates have been used at some of the world’s premiere skiing competitions, including the Salt Lake City Olympics.
They’ve also been used at the X Games and hundreds of ski resorts and lodges around the world in some of the most extreme conditions. They’re able to withstand high winds and heavy snow loads to protect competitors.
Available in a wide range of colors to blend into their surroundings, or stand out in a crowd with a logo if your team wants representation, these highly portable structures are the perfect additions to your slopes.
10. Warming Huts
Warming huts safely shelter skiers thanks to our highly durable frame systems and tensioned fabric membrane that can support heavy snow.
Our fabric membranes are fire-resistant, so heating systems such as our HVAC system can be used without worry. And if you want to keep your hut extra warm, our proprietary insulation layers that have been tested and proven in the world’s coldest environments are up for the job
Options for warming huts include our open-walled Canopy Series or Jubilee Series, which work great with space heaters, very small bonfires, and general huddling to get skiers warm. You can also add side walls if you wish the space to be fully enclosed to avoid exposure to the elements.
Our SQ Series and GB Series are fully enclosed arch-style fabric buildings with the ability to attach our featured product options, such as EnerLayer™ and SuperLayer™ insulation, a 16 kW heater, Alaska ECU, and HVAC to keep the space as warm as possible.
