Heavenly Protests Forest Service Plan for Tahoe

Posted: Updated:

Heavenly Mountain Resort is protesting portions of the U.S. Forest Service's 15-year land management plan for Lake Tahoe.

In a letter sent to Forest Service chief Thomas Tidwell, Heavenly claims a plan to restrict future ski resort development to 200 acres would apply collectively to all four ski resorts in the Tahoe Basin.

As a result, Heavenly contends, the plan could spark a "development race" by encouraging resorts to submit proposals to develop the 200 acres before other resorts do so.

The Tahoe Daily Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1ezOKhf ) the resort's complaints are among 12 formal objections the Forest Service published to the updated plan for 154,000 acres of national forest lands around Lake Tahoe.

Environmentalists and local fire chiefs also filed formal objections to the plan.
