Master Plan Proposed For Hogadon Ski Area

Casper Area Convention and Visitors Bureau

Last year, Casper city council awarded Casper Mountain Ski Patrol $155,000 for use in expanding their patrol hut at Hogadon.

At Tuesday’s city council work session members of the patrol, in partnership with the city’s Leisure Services Department, said they’d like to see a master plan for the ski area created first.

“They want to spend their money, but they want to make sure that they don’t put up a building in a spot where they’re gonna have to tear it down in the future, the expansion would move them out of where they are.”

Leisure Services Director, Doug Follick, says they’d like to hire a planner to look at all aspects of Hogadon management. Building expansion, and or replacement,  could be part of that.

Follick points out that some Hogadon structures were created using the container packaging from the ski lifts that went up in 1978.

Follick asked council to consider the $75,000 request during its upcoming budget sessions.

In the meantime, he says they’re taking applications for a ski area manager to replace Gary Vantrease who retired at the end of last season.
