Southside at King Ridge
After about half a decade of operation as a surface lift ski area, King Ridge looked to expand for the 1967-68 season.
|First Season of Operation:||1967-68|
|Lifts:||1 chairlift, 1 J-Bar|
|Return to King Ridge Profile
King Ridge's first chairlift, the Southside Double, was installed below the main lodge. Two new gradual novice trails were constructed adjacent to the chairlift, 'The Walrus' and 'And the Carpenter.'
Near the top of the south facing complex was a new J-Bar, serving a novice slope called 'Tea Party.'
Future improvements to the area included additional J-Bars and trails between the lifts.
The lifts were taken down soon after King Ridge's 1995 closing. Some of the Southside slopes are still kept mowed as open conservation area.
