Casper City Council Considers Hogadon Improvement Plan

Anthony Pollreisz, K2 Radio

Casper City Council discussed how the city should digest a $6.1 million master plan for the city-owned Hogadon Ski Area.

City manager John Patterson unveiled the piece-by-peace plan for the long-neglected ski site during Tuesday night’s work session.

The plan, which spans into the budget for the 2016 fiscal year, calls for the purchase of two high-efficiency snow guns in each of the next three years. With funds from the budget for the 2015 fiscal year, the city plans to construct a new ski patrol facility and improve Hogadon’s pond.

Casper mayor Kenyne Schlager said it’d be a shame if the city gave up on Hogadon.

“Our citizens want amenities, and that’s how we attract businesses and professionals to come to our community,” Schlager said. “It’s something the city of Casper needs to start investing in.”

The city plans to pay for two major items with one-cent funds. The city plans to construct a $3.1 million lodge in 2014 with money from one-cent ’15. Plans also call for unallocated one-cent ’14 funds to pay for a $2 million chairlift.

The city also plans to buy a $325,000 snowcat with funds from the FY 2016 budget.

Council approved funds for a new conveyor belt-style lift during a meeting last week. Patterson said that lift is already under construction.
