City Council Considers New Hogadon Maintenance, Ski Patrol Building

Anthony Pollreisz, K2 Radio

Casper City Council is moving forward with plans that may lead to the replacement of neglected maintenance and ski patrol facilities at Hogadon Ski Area.

During its work session on Tuesday, council gave informal approval to spend previously allocated one-cent funds on a cost estimate and architectural sketches for a proposed building that combines the current maintenance and ski patrol facilities.

Casper mayor Paul Meyer supports the plan. He says the ski area is already benefiting from the recent installation of new snow guns and a magic carpet lift.

Meyer says additional construction could benefit Hogadon further.

“Myself, I’m not a skier, but I think it’s showing that, if we invest a fairly small amount of money, the business will take off,” Meyer said. “I’m really happy to see it moving forward.”

According to the council memo, the current ski patrol and maintenance buildings were constructed in 1978 using scrap materials.

Meyer says council previously approved $165,000 for a new ski patrol building roughly a year ago. Meyer says the ski patrol deferred the funding and requested, as outlined in the recently-composed Hogadon master plan, a combined ski patrol and maintenance facility.

Council will likely cast its formal vote on the project during its next regular session on Feb. 4.
