Jackson, WY (AP) - The Jackson Town Council has signed a lease and contingency development agreement with Snow King Mountain Resort that will advance a snowmaking project for the Town Hill.
The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports the town has agreed to lease the resort a water pipe and two pump stations planned for the mountain that are supposed to increase snowmaking capacity.
The ski area has been losing money for years. The number of skiers using the local hill has plummeted by about half over the past eight years.
