Auerbach Engineering Corporation has worked with Northstar and Booth Creek Ski Holdings, Inc. on a number of development projects including single-family residential subdivisions, commercial projects, retail, hotel structures, ski lift and trail design and public service facilities.
AEC prepared the Vesting Tentative Map and Final Map for The Summit and Overlook subdivisions at Northstar-at-Tahoe. The Summit Subdivision consists of 15 custom homesite lots. Lots range in size from 20,148 square feet to 32,720 square feet. Future residences to be constructed on the proposed lots would be primarily custom homes. Roadway and most utility infrastructure for the project exist on the site, and would be extended to serve the new lots. Offsite improvements include two 500,000 gallon high welded steel water tanks, a graded tank access, a graded tank driveway, and approximately 6,950 LF of 12" water line. Two skier access trails (approximately 4.8 acres) into the Summit and Overlook were also approved with this project. The Overlook project consists of developing 26 custom homesite lots to the north and adjacent to the Summit. Lots range in size from 14,200 square feet to 18,000 square feet. The AEC survey department provided topographic design surveys, legal descriptions, property research, Final Map processing and approval and subdivision monumentation.
Date of completion: Current
The project includes consulting and engineering support services through certification of the EIR for the updated Master Plan, which includes existing and proposed improvements for utilities, ski lifts, snowmaking, and roads.
Date of completion: Winter 2011
The Zephyr Lodge is a 14,000 square foot ski-in, ski-out restaurant lodge located at the top of the Tahoe Zephyr Lift with views off the backside of Northstar. The lodge opened in December of 2011 and is LEED certified. AEC was contracted to provide civil engineering, surveying, SWPPP monitoring, and LEED Certification for the project.
This project consisted of utilizing aerial and ground survey information to create a site plan for the the entire Homewood property (approximately 1,500 acres). The site plan was compiled to meet TRPA requirements for coverage and land capability verification as well as future planning for the Homewood Mountain Resort.
Auerbach Engineering Corporation worked with Alpine Meadows in developing a lift alignment for the Sherwood Chair, completed in 2005. Support services necessary for TRPA and Placer County approval were provided by AEC as well as a drainage analysis for the entire resort and surrounding amenities for the creation of a phased BMP and Snow Management Plan.
This project consisted of utilizing aerial and ground survey information to create a site plan for Granlibakken Resort. The site plan was created for submittal to TRPA for verification of the remaining coverage within the 62-acre resort. Extensive research regarding the ownership, easements, paper streets, and land capability was required for this project.
