Snowbird Resort, Wasatch Mountains, Utah.
Construction Completed 1972.
The Mid-Gad Valley Restaurant and Warming Facility was constructed of glue-laminated wood beams and steel gusset plates. The structure was designed to withstand 125 mile per hour winds and blizzards that can deposit 14 feet of snow. Minimal foundation concrete was required due to the bridge type design. Building accommodates 200 skiers.
