Designed to replace an aging Memorial Stadium, the Endless Mountains Athletics Complex had to offer amenities that the previous stadium had not.

Situated on the district campus, the new stadium now can be used by sports teams as well as students during the school day.

The field is a synthetic surface ADDITIONAL INFORMATIONCAPACITY2,700FEATURED IN2011 Architectural PortfolioSUB CATEGORYSports Stadiums/Athletic Facilities for football and soccer. Other amenities include a three-chamber press box with a covered filming deck, new restrooms, concession facilities and generous storage building.

Accessibility was a primary project goal, so two accessible entrances were created for home and visitor entrances, along with a lower accessible parking lot. The design incorporated a unique double-tier bleacher design to enable premium accessible seating while maximizing the unobstructed sightlines.

The stadium is sighted to take advantage of the site’s natural terrace and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. A grand entry plaza not only offers a sense of arrival and can be used for picnic eating, but also frames stunning views of surrounding mountains.
