Potential environmental effects must be considered in relation to key components of ski resort planning, development and renovation. These include:

  • ski run development
  • vegetation management
  • urban and community forestry
  • lift construction impact analysis
  • terrain modification
  • transportation and parking
  • snowmaking and grooming
  • infrastructure capacity
  • hydrology and water use
  • ski area operations and visitor use

Mitigating measures must focus on establishment of the planning parameters and actions needed to address the overall cumulative impacts to mountain and forest ecosystems, aquatic ecosystems, wildlife, and natural terrain features as a result of anticipated ski resort development activities.
