Buttermilk Skier Services building
Civil and environmental engineering for the base of Buttermilk Ski Resort.

RFE completed the civil and environmental engineering for the new skier services building at the base of Buttermilk Ski Resort in partnership with CCY and Design Workshop. The project required stormwater, grading and utility design, and included substantial measures to ensure the improvements were environmentally friendly and sustainable. The project power and communications were complicated due to considerations for the Winter X games.
