2005 Unit Management Plan Amendment

DEC, serving as lead agency and in coordination with the Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA), prepared this Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) to assess the potential cumulative impacts associated with the ski trails and lifts interconnect between the Gore Mountain Ski Center and the Historic North Creek Ski Bowl. This interconnect consists of the proposed ski trails and lifts identified as lifts #12 and #14 and trails #12-b through #12-j in Figure 1-1 of the 2005 Amendment of the 2002-2007 Unit Management Plan (UMP) and Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS) for Gore Mountain Ski Center (2005 UMP Amendment) in North Creek, Town of Johnsburg, Warren County, New York.

This interconnect is intended to expand skiing opportunities at Gore Mountain and revitalize the Ski Bowl. As can be seen on the maps in Appendix 1 of this SEIS, the interconnect will allow visitors to Gore Mountain and Ski Bowl to ski or walk to the Hamlet of North Creek and the yet to be constructed private "Ski Bowl Village Project" proposed by the FrontStreet Mountain Development, LLC (FrontStreet) and permitted by the Adirondack Park Agency (APA) in April 2008.
