Posted By: The Ski Channel on August 31, 2009 10:25 am

Serene Sun Valley Idaho will be home to a new giant gondola this winter. The Roundhouse Gondola will connect the River Run Plaza to the Roundhouse Restaurant, and it will carry 1,800 passengers per hour (56 eight passenger cars), traveling 2,000 vertical feet in eight minutes. Construction is going on right now, and it’s definitely the biggest gondola construction going on right now. Maybe you’ll catch some familiar faces on the gondola when you head to Sun Valley this year. Some frequent celeb guests of the ski area include Bruce Willis, Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore and Tom Hanks. Keep your eyes peeled!
