The Deschutes National Forest Service has given approval to Mt. Bachelor to move ahead on its ten year improvement plan for the ski hill. 

 

The Forest Service held public hearings and heard public comment and studied the effects the project could have and gave the green light. 

Amy Tinderholt is with the Forest Service: “We look at the full scopes of wildlife, vegetation, botany and the effects to recreation opportunities and traffic on century drive.  We look at the full effects both environmentally and on the public that is utilizing the area.”

 

There is a 45 day appeal period from mid February to April 1st.  If no one objects, the project will go forward.

 

Some of the improvements slated for Mt. Bachelor include new chairlifts,  a new kids adventure zone,  new lodge and parking lot for the Sunrise base and moving the tubing hill.
