Winter is here, and tent storage facilities are the perfect solution for your extra storage needs. Our robust frame tents offer an unobstructed interior that's ideal for storage, whether it's winter gear, snow removal equipment, or seasonal decorations. Please note that these temporary structures are non-engineered and don't have a snow load rating. Hence, it's important to heat the tent before storing your precious items in snowy areas.

#10 Area for Guests to Lounge

Elevate your guests' ski resort experience by providing them with the opportunity to take in the breathtaking views of snow-capped mountains from our cozy tent lounge area.
