One of the newest office buildings in Denver’s RiNo neighborhood will have a ski company at its summit. Alterra Mountain Co., a company that went from not existing to owning 12 North American mountain resorts in a matter of months starting last year, will move its corporate headquarters into the top floor of the Zeppelin Station by the end of the year. The 10-year lease, confirmed by Alterra and Zeppelin Development officials Wednesday, grants the ski industry power player 34,000 square feet of space in the LEED-designed building at 35th and Wazee streets, including the entire top floor.
