A slate of new projects are in store for Snow King Mountain Resort. Ski area owners have begun a years-long approval process for a gondola and a boundary expansion that would increase the size of the resort from 370 acres to 614 acres.
Snow King Mountain Resort decision-makers said this week they will begin seeking approval for a gondola, top-to-bottom zip line and boundary expansion that would make the Town Hill two-thirds larger.
The King’s president, Max Chapman, outlined the ambitious plans for Jackson’s historical community ski area at a town meeting Monday. The aim, Chapman said, is to create a ski hill that will serve locals while also holding its own against other resorts in the region and across the country.
