Summit to Square Chairlift Project Celebration

June 14 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Please join us on June 14th at the base of Snow King Mountain at 5PM for the grand opening celebration of this project. Remarks at 5:30. Live music and refreshments until 7PM.

Over 30 local businesses and organizations have provided support for the Square to Summit project, a public art partnership between Snow King Resort, JH Chamber of Commerce, Town of Jackson, and JH Public Art. Twenty-five salvaged Snow King Summit lift chairs will be repurposed as colorful benches and swings to form a walking corridor from downtown Jackson to the Snow King summit. This project celebrates Jackson’s unique cultural identity, history, and people by elevating local ski culture, its heritage, and our landscape. The installations will provide a place to be outdoors, relax, connect, and discover the history of Snow King Mountain.

A public art project of this scale brings together many local and regional entities, requiring collaboration between the public and private spheres and the support of many generous sponsors. Jorgensen Engineering and Nelson Engineering are each handling aspects of the complicated technical work behind this installation; Westwood Curtis Construction will complete all excavation work; and Premier Powder Coating out of Rexburg, Idaho is undertaking all steel and custom color powder coating.

This project is based in historic preservation, encouraging vibrant walkable areas and acknowledging the important role Snow King Mountain plays in our lives both in terms of as an economic driver and as a place for our community to recreate together. Signage at each installation will celebrate this history, with interpretive support from the JH Historical Museum & Society, as well as recognize businesses that have contributed funds to the project.
