April 20, 2022
JUNEAU (AP) — Juneau has purchased a gondola in Austria for the city-owned ski area, but questions remain about long-term plans. Officials have expressed interest in working with the Goldbelt Native corporation on the project.
City officials recently signed a purchase agreement to buy the gondola system for $1.33 million.
Deputy City Manager Robert Barr said the city is seeking bids from transport companies to bring the gondola to Juneau. Eaglecrest Ski Area has been looking for ways to expand summer operations and create opportunities for a more sustainable year-round model.
