A-Frame Club offer a collection of 31 eponymous cabins in Winter Park, Colorado. Each 475-square-foot cabin spans two light-filled stories, including a main floor living room, kitchenette, and full bath with shower, along with a lofted bedroom and freestanding Japanese onsen-style soaking tub—perfect for that ski-après Insta shot.
Designed by Portland, Oregon-based Skylab Architects in partnership with Zeppelin Development, A-Frame Club is situated on two acres in Old Town Winter Park, less than a third of a mile from the longest continually operated ski resort in Colorado. In addition to the cabins, the site will also include a saloon, which is open to both the public and hotel guests and features an elevated wood-fired menu of French Alpine-inspired food and drinks like Croque Monsieur and French onion soup.
A-Frame Club’s rustic bar will also feature a heated outdoor après deck with extensive mountain views. The après-ski-inspired menu focuses on classic cocktails, herbal liquors and spirits, and hot cocktail options perfect for beating the winter chill. There will also be a selection of beers on tap from local Colorado breweries.
A geometric elevated boardwalk connects the cabins themselves, and the arrangement of the cabins preserves existing trees while allowing guests to seemingly float among the forest around them. The layout is also designed to have an environmentally light footprint and create privacy and ambiance for guests. A nearby signature event lawn with a fire pit offers another communal space for guests to gather.
Zeppelin Development worked closely alongside Skylab and Denver-based Wunder Werkz to incorporate the hotel’s nostalgic-forward branding into the overall design. They, much like you, looked to classic ads from the ’70s for design inspiration.
