Örndalen Resort Comprehensive Four-Season Resort Master Planning


Örndalen(Swedish for Eagle Valley) is a new mountain resort development in the Vemdalen area of central Sweden. The project involves the development of approximately 100 Hectares of skiable terrain, a mountain village, multi-season recreation facilities and an 9 hole golf course. It also includes the development of approximately 5,500 new beds in various offerings from high density village settings to intimate slopeside cabins. IAD’s design philosophy draws from the local materials and culture. This family friendly resort will benefit from a thoughtful plan that locates real estate to be completely ski in-ski out and amenity based.

Mountainworks (International Alpine Design) was retained as the projects master planner and hired to design all aspects of the resort real estate and amenities. Mountainworks services have included site suitability and land capability studies, land use concept planning, project visioning and visualizations, design development master planning and detailed site planning, as well as a detailed economic and business planning.
