Gondola – Snow King Mountain, WY

In 2021, Snow King Mountain replaced the Summit double with a gondola and moved the base of the Cougar chair uphill.
This is the first Leitner-Poma lift at Snow King.
Capacity on the gondola is relatively low at 1,000 people per hour.

    Snow King may want to get patrol to trim the anchor bolts on the old Summit double foundations soon, could become quite a hazard as the old CTEC foundation bolts stick out like 14in.

      The deck was removed as the terminal sits right up hill of it, the old deck foundations are visible in the pictures of the multry tower and top terminal along with old foundations of the double chair.
