The University of Utah Spence Eccles Ski Team Building is a state-of-the-art facility that is the first of its kind in NCAA skiing. Eccles, who was the lead donor for the building, was an All-American skier at Utah in the 1950s.
Our architects’ design includes a ground floor lobby that houses the Alf Engen Sportsmanship Award bowl, a ski-themed chandelier, and a commemorative donor plaque. A film study room and lounge for the student-athletes also holds a small office for private study and meetings, as well as plaques commemorating Olympians and All-Americans. Men’s and women’s custom locker rooms for dry gear storage open into Nordic and alpine team rooms with tuning tables and ski and boot storage for each team.
On the second level, a large board room is available for team meetings and also serves as a trophy room, holding Utah’s NCAA trophies along with a plaque commemorating Utah’s individual national champions. The table features a three-dimensional map identifying the ski areas of the Wasatch mountains and a balcony with views of the mountains and the city is also available for gatherings.
