JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Snow King Mountain Resort (SKMR) today submitted its Base Area Master Plan Amendment (BAMPA) to the Town of Jackson for review on Monday.
The master plan was revised based on stakeholder and community feedback through the Snow King Community Stakeholder process facilitated by TOJ, which held several open house engagement meetings to solicit public comments. Based on these comments and insights from the stakeholder members, SKMR revised its plans to reflect changes throughout the proposed Master Plan Amendment.
“Listening to the community and stakeholders, our owners and board strived to make changes and adjustments to the Base Area Master Plan Amendment to reflect issues and needs that people said they cared about regarding Snow King,” said Snow King general manager Ryan Stanley. “Snow King has worked diligently over the last several years to re-design and incorporate amenities that are important to our community and we have tried to do our best to listen to as many voices as possible through this process.”
The amendment reflects several tweaks to SKRMA’s original master plan, now nearly two decades old. Changes include shrinking the proposed east and west boundary expansion, proposing a Mountain Sports Training Complex (including an indoor climbing gym), updating employee housing requirements, reducing proposed zip lines, and supporting a second sheet of ice to be added by the town to the base area.
“Engaging the public and stakeholders provided us with an opportunity to hear from many user groups, community members, nonprofits and longtime valley residents as to what folks want to see on Snow King,” said Snow King Mountain Resort board member Jeff Golightly. “Snow King wants to be a mountain for all, with activities for every age range and ability. Our plans for the future center around creating a small town ski area that can be sustainable and viable for generations to come.”
