Snow King Ski resort in Jackson has high hopes for a number of proposed changes that they say could keep the ski area from closing.  Snow King Manager Manuel Lopez said that they want to install ziplines, an Alpine coaster, and a bike park among other things.

“I want to maintain the tradition of skiing and I believe the best way to do that is to increase the revenue through other sources.  And convert the hill into a year round profitable venture with lots of activities.”

Lopez said if they don’t make the transition the ski area is likely to close.
