Crested Butte Ski Area Projects EIS

Crested Butte Ski Area Projects EIS


The U.S. Forest Service (Forest Service), Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre, and Gunnison National Forests (GMUG), is preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to consider and disclose the anticipated environmental effects of implementing select projects from the Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) 2013 Master Development Plan (MDP). Through the identification of opportunities and constraints at the ski area, the proposed projects are designed to allow CBMR to meet guest expectations for a safe and enjoyable recreational experience that is uniquely Crested Butte, by providing appropriate ski terrain, chairlifts, and enhancing summer activities at the resort.

Additional information about the project, including the Purpose and Need and a detailed description of the Proposed Action, is available in the Project Overview
