The ski resort is aiming to expand to the Atoma area on the north side of the highway, adding two new chairlifts as well as 11 new ski trails to the existing terrain.
The development would include a skier bridge over the highway to connect the main ski area to the new terrain, new restroom in the Atoma area and a water pipeline and 5 million gallon water tank to support snowmaking.
The US Forest Service has now released a draft Record of Decision (ROD) and final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for a 45-day formal objection period.
Objections will be accepted only from people who have previously submitted specific written comments regarding the proposed project during scoping or other designated comment periods.
The draft ROD and final EIS are available at: https://www.fs.usda.gov/project/?project=41487
