Enter “Stage of Forest,” the viewing platform, overlook, event space and observatory that rises above the picturesque surroundings on a concrete base. With cedar shingles, a unique triangular design of a reminiscent of a falling leaf and wide panoramic views of the people enjoying the slopes below, this is a structure the blends into its surroundings while also standing out from the from the snow-capped landscape below. Between the picturesque views, the portholes in the floor and all the beautiful intersections of wood, concrete and glass, this is a structure that begs to be explored.
