UNDER CONSTRUCTION! 🚧 The latest SB build update

Well, it’s not as exciting as the actual roof lift or wall installation … but, look at our big, beautiful fence for construction! (cue the “ooohs” and “ahhhs”). On June 24, we officially kicked off construction on “the big guy across the parking lot” and we’re stoked to see the dream turn into reality.

📅 New projected opening date

This has been quite the grind, so we like to think of it as an alpine start (you know, get up in the dark and hike to get to the climbing). We’re projecting a February 2025 opening date, and will keep you posted on our progress as we make the climb. Thanks for sticking with us—we can’t wait to adventure with you soon!
