Wolf Creek Upgrade Plan Accepted by Forest ServiceBy Michael Frank on December 13th, 2012
There are two “buts” to that headline. One is that the part of the plan that would see Wolf Creek add terrain is on hold pending the USFS’s internal assessment of the San Juan National Forest’s land management plan revision. And acceptance doesn’t mean approval. Wolf Creek’s upgrade plans still have to go through environmental assessment. What’s on the table now, without the new terrain Wolf Creek would like to add, includes upgrades to lodges, adding high-speed lifts where slower lifts currently exist, and especially re-engineering the Treasure Lift so that it cuts a new line to intermediate terrain higher on the hill. None of which impacts the skier experience for double-diamond shredders or those seeking gnar in the backcountry…and that may be just as well. Via Pagosa Springs Daily.
