Construction Update June 13, 2014

There has been much progress made over the last few weeks, and the new Hyland chalet is really beginning to take shape. Much of the exterior of the new ski patrol building has been formed, poured, and is now curing.

The exteriors of the ski patrol building and parts of the main chalet feature a technique called “board form concrete”.  Concrete is poured into a form made of wooden boards. After the concrete has time to cure, the form is removed, leaving behind an imprint of the wood’s grain. The Hyland project is using cedar boards, noted for their distinctive grain pattern as seen below.
