Conscious Ecoliving: Eco-Pods & Igloo-Domes
One of the most thrilling nature experiences you’ll ever have is to spend time at a ski resort amidst breath-taking views of the surrounding country-side. To add to this enriching experience, eco-pods and igloo-domes go up just about anywhere and have become quite-the-thing at ski resorts, due to their portability and capacity to be erected quickly in remote alpine locations… all this, while leaving behind only a light eco-footprint!
The spherical design of a geodesic eco-pod or igloo-dome derives its structural strength from inter-connected triangles that create a free-standing framework. Ecoliving Domes enclose more space and require less building materials by using the ‘doing more with less’ principle. ― credit to Buckminster Fuller, father of the modern geodesic dome.
The energy required to heat and cool a dome is approximately 30% less than that of a conventional building. There are no corners to obstruct the ambient airflow within the dome’s interior, thus less energy is needed to circulate air and maintain optimal temperatures
Nestled amidst the deep snows and gentle slopes of the Swiss Alps, visitors to Chalet Les Cerniers come upon iconic Eco-Dome Pods located just a short distance to excellent skiing. Whitepod is a popular alpine resort, providing the warmth of private Eco-Dome Pods, an experience that brings ski enthusiasts back season-after-season to experience this extraordinary wilderness ski destination.
After the day’s adventures, you’ll look forward to your very own private pod, warmed by a wood or pellet stove. Guests love stepping outside their dome after a restful night’s sleep to greet the fresh, mountain air, while other delightful smells point them towards the main lodge for a hearty breakfast before taking to the slopes.
New this Year… The “Pod Experience Suites”!
Something new has recently been added to Whitepod’s eclectic lodging. The ultimate Pod Experience Suites joined the family of fifteen existing pods, the Cosy, the Family and the Deluxe pods for a total of eighteen pods.
The “Pod Experience Suites” offer three exceptional environments: the “Swiss”, the “Forest” and the “007.” Upon watching this short video, you’ll want to jump over to their website and book your stay at one of these unforgettable accommodations (whitepod.com).
