Snowbird, UT, posted two photos on its social media pages yesterday with the caption “3.1.22. The shape of things to come at Snowbird.”
“Skiers, snowboarders, mountain bikers, and anyone else who enjoys visiting the resort may want to watch for a big reveal Tuesday.”
Each photo depicts a sizeable rectangular-box-like item. What could this mean?
Many online are predicting a new tram. But will that be an upgrade to the current tram or a brand new tram elsewhere on the mountain? According to LiftBlog, the current tram is 50-years old and lacks modern features, such as automatic doors.
Another explanation could be a terrain expansion into American Fork. A plan for a gondola between Hidden Peak and the Mary Ellen Gulch in American Fork Canyon was approved in 2016.
I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
This all but confirms new tram cabins as rumored for awhile now. The current ones are 50 years old and don’t have basic things like speakers or automatic doors. https://t.co/Ll6PonSrYJ
