Please sign the online petition to support Phase 2. The first new development will be a Gondola to the Summit.
One of the main components of Phase Two is a gondola to replace the existing Summit Lift. This gondola would originate at the base of Snow King and terminate at the summit.
New guest service facilities at the base and summit of Snow King are currently being analyzed. One facility would be located at the summit of the mountain and will be the site of a restaurant facility, meeting space, ski patrol station, and potentially a telescope and observatory. A potential second facility at the base of the mountain would host ticket sales and other guest services.
A zip line originating at the top of the mountain and terminating at the base, adjacent to the proposed gondola. This zip-line would be the steepest in the country and would reach speeds up to 70 mph. An additional zip line tour with multiple spans that originate at the summit of the mountain and terminate at the base is also under consideration.
A new network of downhill specific, lift-accessed bike trails on the mountain will provide an in-town option for gravity fed bike enthusiasts consisting primarily of beginner and intermediate flow trails.
A new road to the summit of the mountain is proposed with a grade suitable for beginner skiers. This road will facilitate the transport of heavy equipment to the summit of the mountain for development of a gondola and guest services facility.
A proposed boundary expansion will serve to provide additional intermediate ski terrain, an access route for the summit road, and additional biking / hiking trails.
Alternative 1 proposes an expansion to the East for new intermediate ski terrain and a down hilll mountain bike park. Alternative 2 proposes a reduced expansion to the East utilizing the existing ski area permits to the South for beginner and intermediate ski trails as well as downhill mountain biking.
Glading and fire mitigation measures within the ski area boundary, night lighting improvements, grading of ski runs to improve beginner/intermediate terrain.
