2008 Ski Bowl Interconnect SEIS

After determining that the 2005 UMP amendment did not fully address the cumulative impacts associated with the proposed interconnection between Gore Mountain and the adjacent Ski Bowl, the Department conducted a supplemental SEQR review of potential impacts associated with the connecting ski trails and lifts in conjunction with the Ski Bowl Village project application that had been submitted to APA in May 2006.
