Sneak Peek At Big Sky's New 75-Person Tram While Under Construction

By

Big Sky’s new Lone Peak Tram is currently being constructed in Switzerland by CWA and they wanted to share a quick update to let folks know where they are in the process. The frames are completed and have been primed and painted and the haul ropes are en route to Montana. Here’s the full update:

“While we have 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 our local construction logistics managers to the team building the Tram cabins in Europe, our teams have been busy as we 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.
As soon as we close for the winter season on April 23, local teams will begin snow removal on roads, the top and bottom terminal construction sites, and the new tower site to prepare for this summer’s 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.
