Coming December 2016: New Sweetwater Gondola
Looking ahead to next winter, JHMR will be adding a new gondola to open mid-December 2016. The new Sweetwater Gondola is a significant capital investment, part of a broader and sustained capital investment strategy to continue to ensure a world class experience for JHMR guests. The new Sweetwater Gondola will also support several specific objectives; to significantly increase out of the base area capacity, and over time to provide access to a new and enhanced ski school facility located in the Solitude mid station area. The Sweetwater Gondola will be located between the Bridger Gondola and Teewinot High-Speed Quad, will have a mid-station approximately a third of the way up the mountain in the Solitude area, then continues up to terminate just uphill of the Casper Restaurant. In total, the new gondola will rise 1,276 vertical feet. JHMR is excited to look beyond the 50th anniversary and into the future, as the Sweetwater Gondola is the first of many upcoming capital investment projects. The Kemmerer Family ownership proudly plans over the next few years to continue investment into winter restaurant capacity and an all new children’s and beginner learning facility at the mid-way point of the new Sweetwater Gondola.
