Construction Has Begun!

We’ve officially broken ground on the new Agassiz lift! Snowbowl and Leitner-Poma crews recently began the process of digging the foundations for the bottom terminal and lift towers, and the work is expected to continue for the next two weeks. Once all the foundations have been prepped, the next step will be the arrival and the installation of the lift towers in mid to late June. Check out the photos of the progress below taken by our mountain operations manager, John Nichols!
