Winter Park Resort Phase 2

Downhill Mountain Bike Expansion and Improvement Project

On behalf of the Forest Service, Owl Ridge prepared a BA and a BE to address Winter Park Resort’s planned expansion and improvement to its Trestle Bike Park. The project included new trails and closing/reclaiming some existing trails and roads. The BA addressed Forest Service concerns regarding wildlife and Forest Service objectives and effects on species the USFWS has listed or proposed for listing as threatened or endangered under the ESA. The BE addressed Forest sensitive species and management indicator species.
