The Deal Is Not Yet Final



Middle Boulder Creek Coalition, the Boulder County Commissioners, Indian Peaks Group of the Sierra Club, and Powdr Corporation, owners of Eldora Ski Area, signed an historic agreement on December 18, 2017, by that sets the framework for a compromise regarding the ski area’s plans for expansion.

Signing the agreement was a major hurdle, but the deal is not yet final. The Forest Service will have to approve it, and to do so, it will need to issue a new draft record of decision, probably preceded by a public comment period. Once issued, there may be an opportunity to object to the proposed decision. Though the Forest Service is unlikely to have any problems with approving and implementing the agreement, scrutiny will still be needed to ensure the deal become final.

In the meantime, donations for our continued work in conserving the undeveloped condition of the Middle Boulder Creek area and getting the ski area expansion deal approved will still be needed.
