Steamboat: Construction - Fastest and Longest Gondola in North America
A Top-to-Bottom Gondola
The new Wild Blue Gondola will be the longest gondola in North America and the fastest 10-person gondola in the country. With the lower leg opening in winter 22/23, and the upper leg opening in 23/24, the state-of-the-art gondola will feed skiers/riders through a newly created mid-station adjacent to Bashor bowl with the final destination at the top of Sunshine Peak.
At a total length of 3.16 miles, the new gondola will increase the out of base capacity from 6,000 people per hour to 10,000 people per hour, getting skiers from bottom to top in 13 minutes.
