Resort seeks to add ropes course, zip line to operations

Jun 27, 2013 - The Associated Press

JACKSON -- Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is proposing to add an "aerial adventure course" to its operations.

The resort is seeking approval from the Bridger-Teton National Forest for its plan.

The proposed project would include a ropes course and a 2,000-foot zip line and 70-foot "drop tower," which would allow for simulated free falls.

Resort engineer Bill Schreiber says the adventure course would provide more summer activities at the resort in Teton Village.

Schreiber said the resort is trying to become more of a four-season resort.

He says if the proposal is approved, the resort would like to start building the ropes course this fall.
