Shredding Slopes and Lighting Steps
Amerlux Helps Ski Resort Protect Dark Skies
Snowmass Village, a picturesque ski town nestled in the Rocky Mountains near Aspen, Colo., wanted to redevelop its town center with new buildings for a hotel, condos, town hall and an outdoor ice rink. The challenge? Built around a 35,000 square foot plaza, the town needed a way to illuminate the space while still preserving area’s iconic night skies.
Construction on the hotel ran over budget and the developer called on Innovative Lighting Consultants (ILC) for help. The Denver-based lighting design firm found a ready answer for the dark skies and budget issues in Amerlux’s Passo LED step light.
