Since the Alpine expansion and food court "face-lift" were both huge successes at the resort this past year, we decided to give the Alpine Room a little re-design, too. The resort decided that the Alpine Room should look more like a ski lodge, similar to Boulder Ridge Lodge, and connect more with the style and feel that has been captured inside the new Alpine Market (food court). The re-design calls for more warmth and "warming up" the room is exactly what's been happening during this transformation.
Walls have been painted with a rustic and warm orange color to match the beautiful treated wood that is being placed on the walls to give the room that "lodgey" feel. New carpet will be installed and wooden beams will soon be stretched across the ceiling.
The project is coming along nicely with new pieces of wood being hung every day. By mid-June, brides & grooms, banquets, class reunions, and conferences will be enjoying the newly re-designed Alpine Room. We are excited to see how our summer and fall events take to the new Alpine Room, but even more excited to see how guests react to it in the winter. Sipping hot cocoa, sitting by the fire and looking out to the slopes from our new Alpine Room will certainly give the feel of a real ski lodge.
