Painted in Nest’s signature light blue, the Nest Express operates more like a cozy and mobile living room, than an actual home. The design team swapped out the icy metal benches with wrapped, Pendleton-designed benches, and covered up the typically barebones walls with cedar wood planking. Framed artwork and curtains add an extra homelike touch.

The snug and warm space also features a glowing Nest Learning Thermostat and a Nest Protect: Smoke + Carbon Monoxide alarm. The smart technology is programmed with a female’s voice that greets passengers. Nest Express will stay a part of Squaw Valley all winter long.
