Raise Your Guests' Experience with Warming Huts

Ski resorts and ski lodges use warming huts as a heated refuge for winter sports enthusiasts to seek shelter from severe weather. As temperatures drop and the chill of winter sets in, the outdoors becomes an adventure arena for thrill-seekers. With the right safety measures and the availability of a warming hut from Alaska Structures®, there’s no need to give up on outdoor activities due to the cold weather. Whether guests are racing down the ski slopes, participating in winter sports like downhill skiing, snowboarding, figure skating, or competing in grand events like the Winter X Games, warming huts provide a warm and sheltered space essential for day-long winter activities. This is particularly true in isolated locations where a ski lodge may be absent, offering hot meals and comforting beverages.

Alaska Structures® is the leading global supplier of engineered fabric building systems. Available in many models and sizes and with optional insulation and heating systems, our warming huts are set up quickly and offer unmatched durability for outdoor enthusiasts, like cross-country skiers, backcountry snowboarders, snowshoers, and sled dog racers, who face winter conditions for prolonged periods. We work closely with winter sports event planners, ski resort owners, and operations directors to meticulously design warming huts able to meet specific wind and snow loads required by the local or International Building Code (IBC) for safety. Warming huts from Alaska Structures® offer the convenience of being installed and used year-round, or they can be quickly disassembled and stored away for the following winter season.

Fabric Structures Make Great Warming Huts

A warming hut from Alaska Structures® offers a multitude of perks and benefits for anyone who plans on spending any amount of time outdoors in winter weather. Our tensioned fabric structures perform exceptionally well in all types of weather, especially extreme temperatures as low as negative 80 degrees Fahrenheit! No other fabric-building system is engineered to withstand prolonged use in such punishing conditions.

By design, our fabric buildings offer an unrivaled degree of portability compared to more conventional building construction, like wood, brick-and-mortar, or metal buildings. Our fabric buildings employ a high-strength aircraft-grade aluminum or galvanized steel frame system. Our metal frames can also be ordered with an optional powder coating for highly corrosive environments or to improve interior aesthetics. The tensioned membrane is made for long-lasting durability, is UV stabilized (not coated), rot, mold, and mildew resistant, and can be ordered to exceed the California Code of Regulations (CCR) for membrane structures. Another benefit of our fabric buildings is that they have a minimum foundation requirement, reducing the time and cost of pre-site construction work if set up permanently. They can be anchored to any ground type to ensure safety.

When you choose a warming hut from Alaska Structures®, you have the ability to configure the width, height, and length, and a myriad of choices, including insulation (capable of meeting any R-value), heating systems (stoves and heaters), ventilation, flooring systems, lighting and electrical systems, windows, and doors of all types and sizes. Our tensioned fabric membranes are available in many colors. Choose from bright orange to create a structure that is easily identifiable from a distance or easy to find when blizzard conditions prevail. Or choose a color combination and pattern that matches your existing ski resort buildings or blends in with nature. Add your ski resort logos or a unique design. Our in-house printing capability is an excellent solution for creating warming huts with logos for band identity or promotional purposes.
