Snowbowl Cleared to Build

October 1, 2010

Arizona Snowbowl has been cleared to add a conveyor-belt-type device to carry beginning skiers uphill, and to log a new ski trail.

Coconino National Forest District Ranger Mike Elson signed off on the plans Sept. 24.

Arizona Snowbowl plans to add the 150-foot-long conveyor belt this fall and regrade a 1.5-acre area due north of its lower lodge with bulldozers to create a flatter teaching area.

The owners plan to use the conveyor belt to save beginning skiers a walk uphill during lessons. They also plan to widen a lift line at the Spur Catwalk.

Whether logging is feasible this year is less certain, given the late start to the project and the onset of winter weather in two months or less.
