Gondola opening pushed back

-A A +A
By Corinne Westeman

While the Argo Mill had hoped to have its new gondola open by this summer, it likely won’t open until winter 2019 at the earliest.

The gondola, which will start and end on Argo property but will run over City of Idaho Springs land, will help users access the new Virginia Canyon Mountain Park.

According to City Planner Alan Tiefenbach, the gondola is part of a rezoning application for the park, which includes city land, Argo property and mining claims owned by Mary Jane Loevlie, one of the Argo’s owners.
