The Maximum Security Interlodge requires people to stay indoors, and away from windows or doors where snow could break through if an avalanche hit the building.
“When you’re in Maximum Interlodge, it means you’re in a particularly safe part of a building that’s not likely to be affected by an avalanche hitting the building,” said Alta Mayor Harris Sondak.
