Trivia Question 11 How does the Ptarmigan Hotel make their rooftop “Happy Hour” sign

Posted by Kim Filler


Over decades the answer has stumped many gondola riders. If you ask General Manager Ben Franco he will tell you “walls here talk, come for drink and you might walk away knowing the answer”. Not to burst their bubble we’ve decided to share our best guess. To find out for sure stop in for happy hour and let us know if we’re on the right track. While it seems logical heat tape is the obvious answer, upon closer inspection there is still a layer of snow making that theory impossible. We believe it is done by a very nimble employee who manually creates the sign without leaving tracks?
