A great build that really felt like it was a ski hill you would find on a trip or something. Meaning that everywhere I looked there was snow, or mountain, that drove home the point that it an actual mountain. I really liked your ski lodge as well, and the snow on all of the roofs drove home the point that this was a mountain that had lots of snow. Great build!!

Another really similar build to first place that had me scratching my head which to place first. Like the first one, I can’t really say anything negative about this one. Just a great build, great atmosphere, and great terrain. While this doesn’t matter at all, I really liked the before and after shot you put of the build. Put into perspective what you did.

Awesome build!

Another great mountain and a great build! I loved the ski lodge for this one. I can tell lots of work went into it. One small complaint is the area surrounding it felt really bare. Almost like you slapped the build just on some snow, rather than feeling like an actual ski lodge. I liked the dense trees too which clearly outlined your ski runs, very well made and designed.

Good job!
