Yosemite National Park, CA — Yosemite National Park has announced a 30 day public scoping period for an environmental assessment of the proposed rehabilitation of Badger Pass ski Lodge.
Public scoping comments will be used to assist the park in developing a range of reasonable and feasible project alternatives that meet the purpose and need, including a no action alternative, and then analyzing the environmental effects of each alternative.
The scoping period will run from January 14 until February 13. Comments can be mailed to Superintendent, Attn: Badger Pass Ski Lodge Rehabilitation, P.O. Box 577, Yosemite, CA 95389. They can also be faxed to (209) 379-1294 or e-mailed to Yose_Planning@nps.gov.
The purpose of the rehabilitation project is to provide a phased program for the Badger Pass Ski Lodge that will maintain and protect the integrityof the historic Badger Pass Day Lodge and character-defining features of the Badger Pass cultural landscape, treat critical deck, structural and drainage deficiencies contributing to past and ongoing water-intrusion damage, replace temporary structures with permanent buildings of compatible construction to maintain continued ski area operations, and maintain ski area service and support functions while protecting the winter recreation visitor experience at Badger Pass Ski area.
