Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort is investing over $35 million into new capital improvements for the 2015/16 season. Improvements include:
- New mountain top facility: The Summit at Snowbird
- Extensive remodel of The Cliff Lodge
- RFID/Smartcard ticketing
- Increased snowmaking capabilities
- Expanded meeting space
The most extensive of these projects includes the construction of a 23,000 ft. state-of-the-art facility dubbed The Summit at Snowbird. Sitting 11,000 ft. above sea level, this building will feature a restaurant, retail store, and heated outdoor patios – all with 365 degree views. The Summit at Snowbird will be the highest year-round alpine facility in the U.S.
Other upgrades include: a Cliff Lodge remodel, expanded snowmaking, implementing RFID/Smartcard Ticketing, and 3,800 sq. ft of new meeting space in The Primrose Meeting Room.
Snowbird anticipates a mid-December completion. Read more at: http://www.snowbird.com/winter/upgrades/
