Big Sky Resort: New Lone Peak Tram
While Big Sky has been enjoying winter and an incredible ski season, work has continued behind the scenes and around the world on the new Lone Peak Tram. From the local construction logistics managers to the team building the Tram cabins in Europe, Big Sky teams have been busy as they prepare to install the Lone Peak Tram this summer. In recent months, CWA in Switzerland has assembled the aluminum Tram cabin frames, primed and painted the exterior with several coats of a special UV-resistant paint and glaze, and is preparing the interior for finishing. The haul ropes have also shipped and are on their way to Big Sky.
After closure, local teams will begin snow removal on roads, the top and bottom terminal construction sites, and the new tower site to prepare for this summerís work and work towards opening in November, 2023.
The new Lone Peak Tram cabins will have a total capacity of 75 people. During the winter season, the capacity will be managed based on mountain and operating conditions to preserve the experience of skiing and riding the Tram. Ski patrol will determine a safe capacity based on open terrain, conditions, and weather.
