SNOQUALMIE PASS, WA - A new ski lodge under construction at the Summit Central resort at Snoqualmie Pass is designed to hold snow rather than shed it. 

Architects say the roof is reinforced to hold 450 pounds per square foot, which is enough to handle a 7-foot snowpack.

The designers say a blanket of snow on the roof to act as insulation, and an added feature is that snow from the roof won't fall on unsuspecting people below.

Directors at The Summit say the new Silver Fir Lodge will bring a boost in service, food variety and seating to Summit Central, and introduce a second option for skiers and snowboarders at Summit East.

The Summit at Snoqualmie lodge will house ski and snowboard rentals, as well as a cafeteria and bar.
