ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — The U.S. Forest Service has authorized Aspen Skiing Co.’s proposal to develop an additional 0.3 square miles (0.8 square kilometers) of skiing terrain on Aspen Mountain.
The Aspen Times reports the authorization came in a draft decision notice issued Wednesday.
The agency also approved a new chairlift and additional snowmaking as part of a goal to develop the Pandora terrain on the mountain’s upper east side.
The company says the new terrain will meet customer demands for a more diverse experience.
