Title
Squaw Valley-Alpine Meadows Base-to-Base Gondola Project
Description
The project includes installation, operation, and maintenance of a winter-time only/ski season only gondola connecting the Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows ski areas. The eight-passenger per cabin gondola would have a design capacity of approx. 1,400 persons per hour in each direction. Travel time between the ski areas is estimated at approx. 16 minutes. In total, the lift would be approx. 13,000 feet in length (based on slope length). Two base terminals, two mid-stations, and 37 towers would be installed. The project would also include installation, operation, and maintenance of an avalanche control system within proximity to the Alpine Meadows portion of the gondola alignment. The avalanche control system would consist of remotely operated gas-activated exploders (Gazex exploders).
