JACKSON, Wyo. — Over the next month, construction will begin to wrap up on Snow King Mountain to coincide with an on-time opening for the 2021/2022 winter season.
“We are starting to wrap things up over the next month on construction and hopefully be making snow by mid-November,” said Ryan Stanley, general manager at Snow King Mountain Resort.
Last weekend, passersby may have witnessed a helicopter carrying new gondola cabins to the summit of the mountain; a significant mark of progress in the construction process that has unfolded before the public’s eye this summer.
“You can expect to see gondola cabins on the line and spinning in the next few weeks,” said Stanley.
With that being said, 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.”
Construction on Snow King Mountain has been an ongoing process this summer. To read more about the progress made in recent months click here.
