This thesis suggests that architectural interventions can aid in reintegrating an ethos of interconnectedness between recreationists and nature, as well as between recreationists and community, by emphasizing and intertwining natural forces and cultural flows. The analogy of a skier in motion, interacting with the landscape and gravity, inspires architectural moves. Revelstoke, British Columbia, Canada, a prime example of a mountain community that has experienced a shift to corporate-based skiing, is the location for this exploration.
