Snow King Improvements

Jackson Town Council last night approved a resolution paving the way for Snow King Mountain Recreation to secure a grant and a low interest loan from the state totaling $1.5-million allowing for improvements on the mountain.  Jackson Mayor Mark Barron says all in all, it’s a project that will be good for the entire community.  He explains the funds will be used to run an eight-inch high-pressure water line for snow-making equipment from the Rafferty Lift to the summit of the mountain.  Additionally, he says there is to be a two-inch potable water line, electricity and communication cables.  Barron says, “The whole purpose of that is for snow-making in the future as well as potential development of a panorama house on the summit of Snow King. The projects in the grant are estimated to cost $2.35 million. Snow King Mountain Recreation has said the balance will be paid for with a local match. Barron explains that the resolution is necessary because the funding would be made through the Town of Jackson. The State Loan and Investment Board is to make a final decision on the funding September ninth.
