Bridger-Teton National Forest Shares Summary of Draft Alternatives for Snow King Mountain Resort On-mountain Improvements Project

Jackson, Wyo.—October 2, 2019—The Jackson Ranger District of the Bridger-Teton National Forest is releasing today, the summary of alternatives being considered in advance of the official publication of the Draft Environment Impact Statement (DEIS). . With the release of this report, the Bridger-Teton National Forest is not currently seeking public comment.  The DEIS for the Snow King Mountain Resort On-mountain Improvements Project will be released in the near future with an opportunity for public comment.

The summary of these draft alternatives will be available online at: https://www.fs.usda.gov/project/?project=54201 as well as the DEIS, at a later date. The formal 45-day comment period will begin with the publishing of the NOA in the Federal Register and a legal notice in the Casper Star-Tribune. 

In July 2019, the Bridger-Teton released a summary of comments received during the scoping period for this project and a summary of issues derived from those comments. Public comments were used to identify issues related to the proposed action. Issues helped   determine the focus of the analysis in the draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). The resulting alternatives were developed in response to scoping comments received and issues raised throughout that public process. The DEIS will disclose potential effects of these four alternatives, including the no action alternative.  Alternatives determined to meet the purpose and need of this project will be analyzed in-depth.
