Homewood's Quail Face use permit

Homewood Mountain Resort has a decades-long history of providing downhill skiing and snowboarding opportunities on the area known as Quail Face. Homewood is currently working with the United States Forest Service on a 20-year renewal of our permit to provide the very same downhill skiing and snowboarding opportunities on this area. The existing ski runs in the Quail Face area and in the permit application include Main Cirque, ’55 Chutes, Wally’s Folly, The Shoulder, Third Creek and a portion of the Noonchester Traverse.

In 2009, the US Forest Service acquired the Quail Face area from Homewood. Since that time, Homewood has received a series of one-year permits from the Forest Service to continue utilizing this parcel for downhill skiing and snowboarding. The 20 year permit application is intended as a longer term solution for both the Forest Service and Homewood to allow the same skiing and snowboarding on Quail Face as has existed for many years. The permit application does not include any changes or increase in usage of the Quail Face parcel.

Homewood would appreciate letters or comments in support of this use permit be submitted to the Forest Service by July 1, 2013. Letters of support can be emailed to comments-pacificsouthwest-ltbmu@fs.fed.us. Comments can also be made by phone Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. by calling (530) 543-2600.
