The U.S. Forest Service is asking for the public to comment on a Draft Environmental Impact Statement which analyzes proposed improvement projects at the Steamboat Ski Area. The input will help guide the decision-making process for this project. The Environmental Impact Statement analyzes individual projects located in the Rough Rider, Bashor Bowl, Pony Express, and Pioneer Ridge areas. The projects would improve the quality of guest services, increase operational efficiency, and enhance the recreation experience for all skiers and boarders. The statement looks at the recreational benefits of these projects against the impacts these projects may create. Project decisions will be made after considering information contained within the analysis, public comments, and staff recommendations. Comments need to be submitted by March 5th. Information on how to comment is available below. To view the complete Environmental Impact Statement, click here.
