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.

But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
