JACKSON, Wyo. — With opening day just around the corner, snow making operations are in full swing at Snow King Mountain.

The mountain plans to open on schedule during the first week of December. However, the new eight-passenger Leitner-Pomma Gondola will likely not be in service on opening day.

“We are planning to open on schedule Dec. 4. The new gondola and backside lift will be open for the season, but will likely open later mid-December to allow for sufficient snowmaking/snow coverage,”  said Snow King General Manager Ryan Stanley to Buckrail in October.

Grand Targhee announced yesterday, Nov. 17, that they will not open on Friday Nov. 19 as planned due to a lack of snow.
