SNAPPED: New Snow King gondola base finds home at former Summit Lift

JACKSON, Wyo. — Today, construction continues to unfold at Snow King Mountain with the setting of its new gondola base where the Summit Lift once stood.

Eventually, this base will service an eight-passenger Leitner-Pomma Gondola that will run from the base to the summit of the mountain. Snow King Mountain has undergone a number of major enhancement projects during the summer of 2021.

In early July, the gondola’s cabins were shipped in from France, while all of the other parts were made in Grand Junction Colorado. The setting of Snow King’s new gondola is just the beginning of a multiple-phase construction project that will pan out over several years.
