Town Council Supports Snow King Ropes Course

July 24, 2014 Jackson Hole Comments Off

Jackson Town Council is lending support for a ropes course planned to be built on Snow King Mountain, but some neighbors are upset. The six station “aerial adventure course” is supposed to be built on public land on the Town Hill which means it’s under Bridger-Teton National Forest jurisdiction and not the town of Jackson. Jackson Hole Daily says the Forest Service has already accepted the master plan, but each individual part needs to be approved

July 21, 2014 Jackson Hole Comments Off

Engineer Kevin Ensor told the board the $6 million concrete capture pad that’s not even two years old hasn’t been performing very well, but airport Director of Operations Craig Logan says the pad is working so great they are giving back a lot of the grant money. Jackson Hole Daily says the glycol in the deicer is sold and recycled
