Snowbowl Gets Go-ahead for Some Improvements

Snowbowl gets started on some improvements, others still on hold including snowmaking:

FLAGSTAFF - Changes are coming to the Arizona Snowbowl. The Arizona Daily Sun reports the resort has received permission to add a conveyor-belt that would carry beginning skiers uphill. The ski resort has also gotten the OK to log a new ski trail...

Work on the 150-foot-long conveyor belt is set to begin this fall. The conveyor belt is intended to save beginning skiers a walk uphill during lessons.

Plans call for regrading a 1.5-acre area due north of its lower lodge with bulldozers to create a flatter teaching area.

Good news for Snowbowl, but a snowmaking decision is still needed so they can make all the improvements planned.
