Forest Supervisor, Bill Dunkelberger, said: “The Forest is eager to hear what the public thinks and if there are other considerations to take into account before a final decision is made.”
The proposed upgrades include the following:
- A new carpet lift besides the Rabbit Peak run
- A new fixed-grip quad chairlift east of the existing beginner area
- A new fixed-grip chairlift for access to several new intermediate runs
- Additional snowmaking lines and a pump house
- ‘Mountain coaster’
- Zip line
Lee Canyon believes the upgrades will help the resort to meet the demands of the current recreation market, which include a desire for a wider range of recreational, year-round activities.
Jim Seely, Marketing and Technology Director for the resort, said he hoped that the entire round of upgrades would take approximately 12 years to complete if given the green light.
