49º North Mountain Resort


49º North Mountain Resort, at Chewelah Peak, Washington, has more than 2,000 acres of mountain terrain, of which 300 acres has been identified for development as a master planned resort.

Beginning in 2000, 49º North hired SCJ to lead site development and permitting for the resort area. The 300-acre private parcel, surrounded by National Forest acreage, is today envisioned (and permitted) for the development of up to 2,700 units and 600,000 square feet of retail, office and multi-purpose space. The project is designed to offer ski-in/ski-out access to virtually all developed parcels, taking advantage of the site’s slope-side location. SCJ continues to direct the resort’s design efforts, including work on conceptual planning, entitlement processing, environmental review, urban design, conceptual utility system planning and other related activities as necessary to support the project’s development.
