The following is a summary of proposed projects identified in more detail in the MDP document. The proposed projects would increase the recreational opportunities that can be offered at Snowbowl without expanding the current ski area boundary. This both serves the public’s recreation demand AND protects the surrounding Wilderness area and sensitive forest by concentrating recreational use where it is most manageable. All proposed projects are within the existing ski area boundary of 777 acres.
New Lift Installations
Lift Capacity Upgrades
Planned Terrain Projects, including 61 acres of new developed terrain and additional gladed terrain managed to enhance undeveloped skiing opportunities and forest health in the following areas:
Comfortable capacity would be increased from 3,870 guests per day to 4,500 guests per day (increase of 630 guests or 16%)
New and renovated guest service facilities
Two caretaker cabins for property management during off-hours, to be incorporated into new lodges or to be separate stand-alone structures, approximately 600-800 sq. ft.
