Forest Service seeks public comments on two projects at Mt. Bachelor, to replace Skyliner lift

The Deschutes National Forest is taking public comment on Mount Bachelor’s plan to install the new Skyliner chairlift. Bachelor plans to replace its four-person lift with a six-person Doppelmayr lift. That requires tree removal, boulder removal, and digging new footings. The top terminal will move 50-feet to allow for more unloading space, while the bottom terminal will be moved 75 feet. Work will also be done on a nearby road to allow large trucks with equipment to pass through. Public comments will be accepted until October 25.
