What's New

Opening November 2015

UPDATE: July 30, 2015
This summer's $9 million project is making progress. Be the first to see our new lighting in the Base Lodge from Hubbardton Forge

UPDATE: July 24, 2015

The vision is taking shape as crews get ready to place the beams, add siding,  and rough in plumbing and electric for the two new kitchens now that the floors under each have been reinforced. 

A new Grizzly’s deck is underway and designers are on their way to reconfigure the bar – with seats all around and a rail along the windows. Grizzly’s bathrooms will be more than double in size. And the stage will move back to its original location  --  remember the Stratton Mountain Boys! Good news: the wood-fired pizza oven stays.

Stay tuned as we’ll be seeing big progress each week.

UPDATE: July 21, 2015

The Base Lodge roof is off and the beams are in place for the second floor as crews continue to work toward a November completion on what is now a $9 million project that adds further enhancements to Grizzly’s – stay tuned for all the details. 

And we have more great news. A cell tower is being placed in Sun Bowl providing better service to those Verizon and AT&T customers. It's official; we're also getting a webcam!

UPDATE: June 30, 2015

Work is well underway on the Base Lodge project which will be complete by opening day.

Crews are setting the foundation for a new elevator that will run from the lower level to Grizzly’s on the top floor. The main servery area has been stripped to prepare for the new, and more efficient, open floor plan. Next on the construction agenda is to relocate the stairs leading up to Grizzly’s Restaurant, starting from the corner previously occupied by the Double Diamond coffee shop.

You can see the progress, along with a Stratton history timeline added to fencing surrounding the Base Lodge, on your way to the gondola (open weekends and holidays). Construction updates and photos will be available throughout the summer via Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and stratton.com.

This summer’s $8.5 million project adds a second floor to the east and west wings, which will provide 4,000 more square feet and an additional 350 seats.

STRATTON MOUNTAIN, VT. -- Just as the stellar 2014-15 season wrapped up, work began on an $8.5 million project that literally raises the roof on Stratton’s storied Base Lodge, adding a second floor to the east and west wings, bringing another 350 seats and approximately 4,000 more square feet.

Design and materials marry the traditional Base Lodge architecture with native stone, hardwoods, barn style board and gates, Vermont-crafted energy-efficient lighting, and a standing seam roof all in a color palette that complements the natural surroundings. A larger kitchen has been designed to serve the expanded Grizzly’s restaurant while the main floor will also be transformed with a new serving area, coffee shop, flooring and details that include wainscoting and Douglas fir columns throughout. The work will be completed for the 2015-16 season which will begin with a grand opening of this new space at the heart of the resort.

Jakober Haus 1642, a wooden structure discovered by Stratton founder Frank Snyder in Alpach, Austria, served as the model for Stratton’s Base Lodge which since 1961 has welcomed generations of friends and family.
The design delivers the seating we need with revised floor plans to meet the demands of an evolving market while maintaining the solid structure and traditional elements of Stratton’s original Base Lodge,” explained General Manager Bill Nupp.

With state-of-the-art kitchens, modern food storage systems and advanced prep technology, guests can expect exceptional dining experiences with high quality meal options in the Base Lodge, across the mountain and throughout the resort as well as in catering for special events,” he added.
