Gondola Connection

Hello Skiers and Boarders,

Our sky is again gray with temperatures this afternoon ranging from 35 at the ridge top to 42 at the base area.  I did not ski today, but a couple of friends indicated it was firm in the morning and did not really soften much until noon.  Neither of them was very enthused about the snow conditions today.

Many of you have shown and interest in the proposed gondola connection between the base of Squaw Valley and the base of Alpine Meadows.  It appears the environmental reports have been completed and reviewed by the Tahoe National Forest Service.  Click the link below to see information presented in the environmental report and the draft decision of the TNFS.  The public has 45 days to comment on the Forest Service decision.  If you are interested in commenting on this issue see the section titled COMMENT PROCESS in the documents linked below.  Basically the TNFS is recommending approval of alternative 4 which would bring the lift over KT22 and down to a point near the base of the Caldwell lift (not current completed) where it would turn ending near the base of the Hot Wheels Lift. Maps of the proposed alignment are provided in the draft decision document.


Enjoy your day,
