Tiny House

Many ski houses are spacious and well positioned on a mountain, just waiting for the powder to blanket them.  This tiny ski house is neither spacious nor well positioned on a mountain...but it just might see more powder than any other ski house because it's on wheels so it goes to where the powder is...wherever that may be!  The Ski House of the Day is the Tiny House.

This house is a project of Outdoor Research (OR) in which a group of skiers, living in the tiny ski house, are on the road following the best powder, and documenting the best skiers they encounter along the way.  (It seems that this interesting Seattle-based outdoor gear company relies heavily on user feedback, so the tiny ski house appears to have the combined goal of promoting their company while conducting market research for product ideas -- marketing genius!  On their website OR claims that they "do weird well"  and based on the tiny traveling ski house, I would have to agree!).

So, back to the ski house itself...according to the tiny house blog it is a compact 112 square feet, with a front porch, kitchen (but no bathroom), electricity, a battery, generator, propane stove for cooking, and an artistic stairway leading to a sleeping loft.  And as you can see, the bright interior wood finish and multiple windows make it very attractive!

It also features a tiny but pretty French wood stove which came from an old Colorado mining town.

The tiny house is absolutely one of the most unique ski houses imaginable!  And it's certainly not for everyone.  But, if you (or someone you love) is living or dreaming of the ski bum lifestyle...this one's for you.


  1. I've been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  2. I spotted this house in Alta, UT today! It had a new truck pulling it and about 18" of brand new snow piled on the roof.

    1. Has anyone else seen the Tiny House recently? Where is it now?
