October Construction Update

The gondola towers are up and the Village plaza is taking shape! If you haven’t seen the latest updates, read more below.

The Gondola

We know the most exciting update is the gondola, so we won’t keep you in suspense… Set to open in mid-December, we’re excited to share that last week the towers were installed from top to bottom. The terminal at the top of the mountain is nearly complete, and work on the terminal at the bottom of the hill will begin soon. Get a sneak peek of the gondola cabins below! Also new this year, gondola-accessed Mountaintop Après at nearly 11,000 feet. Starting in January, enjoy festive drinks and small bites with a sunset view from our mountaintop lodge.

Snowmaking

The snow guns are fired up! Not only is the new system ready to go, but cooler temps allowed for snowmaking on top of over a foot of snow last week. Keep doing your snow dance, and we’ll keep giving mother nature a hand in getting these slopes ready for ski season. Opening day is November 14th!

The Village Plaza

The new plaza space is taking shape as we enter the final month of work on the project. Pavers have been laid, concrete has been poured, and the Timberline chair lift swings will be installed this week. The anticipated completion date is November 7th, so plan to kick back by the fire or take a swing in this cool new space. Don’t miss the Holiday Market and Tree Lighting the weekend following Thanksgiving!

With almost 2 feet of snowfall in the past few weeks, we’re full speed ahead to the 2018/19 ski season. See you on November 14th for opening day!
