RESORTS -- The snow has finally melted and the Silver Mountain gondola is scheduled to reopen Saturday (June 16) to transport hikers, bikers and other visitors who want to enjoy the mountain trails and scenery.
“Summer is a fantastic time to visit Silver Mountain Resort,” said John Williams, director of marketing. “This summer we’re anticipating the 2 millionth rider on North America’s longest gondola since it opened in 1990.”
The gondola will be operating weekends only until July at which time it will be running four days a week (Friday through Monday) until Labor Day.
Father's Day incentive: Dads ride the gondola free this Sunday when accompanied by one or more of their children.
Other incentives: “BARK n’ BREW“ festival in the gondola village Sunday, noon-7 p.m.
Mountain bikers will find more than 30 miles of biking trails that meander down the mountain to the town of Kellogg. New beginner and intermediate trails have been developed.
