The Ski & Snowboard Club Vail which has been in existence since Vail Mountain’s first year of operation in 1962, announced plans this week to replace the existing clubhouse at the base of Golden Peak in Vail with a $25 million, 28,000-square-foot facility.
Vail Daily reports the organization’s current clubhouse has been in operation since 1977. Ski & Snowboard Club Vail provides local athletes with a outlet to national competition with more than a dozen athletes with ties to the club attempting to qualify for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.
“This is the third and, thankfully, final iteration of the project. This is absolutely huge for the club. … We like to think of ourselves as the best ski and snowboard club in the country — if not the world — and now we’ll have a clubhouse to match it.” -Former SSCV board member Phil Hoversten
The new building will be five stories tall, with parking and Ski & Snowboard Club Vail located on the bottom floors. The amenities will include locker rooms, coaches workstations, administrative offices, conference rooms, athlete lounges, video rooms, warm-up and warm-down rooms, a tuning facility, a gym and a medical treatment center.
The project plans to break ground next week and be completed by the 2018-19 ski season.
