Here's a beautiful house, designed by skiing architect, Richard Landry, specifically for his own family ski getaways...and it shows! Perfectly situated on a snowy slope in Mammoth Lakes California, taking full advantage of the views, with lots of glass to let that view shine in, a bunk-room for eight, and many more details that skiers can appreciate, this lavish house (described in the NY Times) is a place that any skier would love to return to after a few runs.
I love the wrap-around deck and its clear railings which allow for unobstructed enjoyment of the view; in fact the railing seems virtually invisible. And speaking of the deck, I would absolutely love to put my tired feet up on that stone fire-pit on the deck for apres-ski enjoyment!
With all its skier-designed features, fantastic mountain views and soaring windows to let those views in, the Ski House of the Day is this architect's own Mammoth Lakes ski home.
