Stevens Pass Hosts Open House for NEW MASTER PLAN!
Hello Stevens Pass Skiers and Snowboarders,
For the past several years Stevens Pass has been doing preliminary work toward creating a new Master Plan to upgrade the resort—officially called a Master Development Plan (MDP). We want Stevens to continue to be a rewarding place to visit, with new terrain, improved lifts and day lodges, yet preserving the characteristics that make it special. Whatever changes we plan need to be carried out in a careful, well-designed and balanced manner, so that our impacts on both the social and physical environments are kept to a minimum. We do not want to jeopardize the beauty of the physical setting we have—the Cascade Range that makes Stevens a special place to visit. We also need to protect wildlife habitat and other values of our National Forest setting. Likewise, our goal is sustainable development that is compatible with the growing communities in the Puget Sound Region, especially those along Highway 2.
We are asking for your ideas and feelings about the future of Stevens Pass. What improvements would you like to see at the resort? What priorities would you have for various projects? Are new runs and lifts highest on your list, or perhaps renovated day lodges and improved parking areas? What concerns do you have about the idea of Stevens Pass changing and growing? Knowing your views is central to the success of the Stevens Pass MDP project.
We will have MDP open houses in the Pacific Crest Lodge, first floor in the Trail Side Room (where Kids’ Club was located last season), Saturday, January 6th and Saturday, January 13th. These informal open houses will run from 9am to 3pm, with maps and photos on the wall. Stevens Pass staff will be there to describe the content of our preliminary MDP at this point; we want your reactions, as well as additional ideas. You will be asked to provide feedback using a form given at the open house.
We encourage guests and employees to participate in the open houses
