With heritage modern design and natural preservation as core values, the Powder Mountain development will consist of more than 500 ski-accessible mountain homesites connected to a village core of similar scale that includes cultural amenities and miles of walking, biking, and nordic trails.
Preservation of the existing natural environment, which includes an elk reserve, natural waterways, and a thriving wildlife population, is one of the leading design principles. Homesites and Cabins will be tucked in clusters of pine and aspen trees to maintain natural views for all community members, and The Village will be dense with living accommodations to allow for more open space in wildlife-sensitive areas. Each building design will meet recognized environmental standards, and energy conservation guidelines will be provided to incorporate cutting-edge sustainability systems and materials.
"Architecture is subservient to the natural landscape."

"Picture a vehicle-free Main Street lined with farm-to-table restaurants and pop-up stores and co-working spaces and second-story condos. A mash-up of postmillennial civic and lifestyle ideas, with an ethos of social entrepreneurism: Telluride meets the Mission District, perhaps."
