Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation has recently released their final plans to redevelop Gondola Square starting in April. The project is slated to be the biggest job they’ve attempted since the resort opened in 1963. The goal is to turn the square into a multi-use plaza adding stores, restaurants, and entertainment venues.

They plan to move the existing gondola terminal 300 feet to the base of the mountain. This will allow the current building to be redesigned for other amenities, such as an ice rink, outdoor seating, and fire pits. The Alterra Mountain Company is funding the multi-year investment for this long-overdue project.

Construction is set to begin in April, and the Christie Peak chairlift will run instead of the gondola during the summer. Retail outlets, independently-owned restaurants, and additional lodging are all expected to open in the space over the next three years. This project will increase the out-of-base capacity from 6,000 people per hour to over 10,000 per hour. As of now, there aren’t any estimates for the cost of the project.
