Located in the Rockies of Northern Idaho, the three-storey mass timber design of the Humbird Hotel at the Schweitzer Mountain Resort unites alpine tradition and forward-thinking eco-design. The contemporary mountain architecture offers 66,580-square-feet of ski-in, ski-out hotel, as well as providing on-slope accommodations to reshape the resort as a year-round destination. The Humbird Hotel demonstrates the potential of innovative timber products by the utilization of Cross Laminated Timber – CLT (roof and desks) and Glulam – GLT (post and beam structure) to keep 137 metric tons of carbon from entering the atmosphere.

The hotel’s exterior brings the surrounding Selkirk and Cabinet Mountains into focus by applying large expanses of glass, combined with board-formed concrete, metal panels and exposed wooden structures to connect guests to the area’s core naturality. The transparent nature of the architecture makes the wooden structure visible, creating a warm and enclosed atmosphere, while providing clear scenic exposure. The Resort’s architectural characteristics embody the advancements of modern mass timber structures, using fully concealed connections, high precision prefabrication, and a well-structured assembly progress.
