Brokeback Mountain Ski Area announces expansion plans

Environmental Impact Statement has been approved by the federal authorities in favor of BMSA plans to provide ski lift access to the back bowl located directly behind Jack's Notch. Several environmental groups have applauded BMSA on its long standing dedication to wildlife and plant species protection.

"In the era of high speed six-packs which carry thousands of skiers per hour our proposal to install a moderate speed triple chair has received a unanimous approval," says BMSA Director of Lift Operations John Clark.

The moderate speed triple chair will deliver fewer skiers and thus reduce adverse environmental impact. It will also provide for longer lasting, untracked powder.

The yet to be named back bowl is on the northern aspect and its legendary powder has been a favorite of backcountry skiers for many years.

The proposed chair lift will be in operation for the 2007/2008 ski season.
