Rose Bowl triple to be replaced with high-speed quad chair
By Summit Voice
SUMMIT COUNTY — Beaver Creek plans to upgrade the Rose Bowl Chair (Chair 4) from a fixed-grip triple to a high-speed quad.
The U.S. Forest Service is currently raking input on the proposal, which would involve some minor tree removal and ground disturbance. The new lift would have an uphill capacity of 2,400 passengers per hour, compared to 1,600 passengers with the existing lift. All activities are within Beaver Creek’s Forest Service-administered Special Use Permit boundary.
“This is another example of Beaver Creek’s attention to mountain planning and commitment to improve the guest experience and maintain a world-class ski resort on National Forest System Lands,” said Dave Neely, District Ranger of the Eagle/Holy Cross Ranger District of the White River National Forest. “With only relatively minor environmental effects anticipated, skier circulation and the guest experience will be greatly improved.”
Comments on the proposal are being accepted until February 12th, 2011. If approved, implementation could occur in time for the 2011/2012 winter operating season. For further information on this project, please contact Don Dressler, Winter Sports Administrator, Eagle/Holy Cross Ranger District, at (970) 827-5157 or email@example.com.
