Winter Park Resort: New Zephyr Gondola
Zephyr Gondola and Increased Snowmaking at Winter Park Resort, Colorado:
Accessed from the Village at Winter Park, and replacing the Zephyr Express quad, the new Zephyr Gondola will improve the guest experience by expanding uphill capacity to 3,200 guests per hour, decreasing wait times by 15 minutes during peak season, and providing faster service to the Seven Territories of the mountain and the Lodge at Sunspot.
Winter Park Resortís 42-year old snowmaking system will be upgraded with state-of-the-art energy efficient systems. Given the mountainís base elevation of 9,000 feet, with quality snowmaking the destination has the ability to extend season operations to enhance early season offerings.
