Olympic National Park: Authority proposes permanent chairlift for Hurricane Ridge

OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — Downhill skiing at Hurricane Ridge could be headed uphill in a new way.

A proposed two-chair ski lift would improve access and change the face of the only downhill ski area on the North Olympic Peninsula.

That’s the picture the Hurricane Ridge Public Development Authority is painting.

“We want very much to upgrade our facility up there,” Steve Oliver, authority president, said last week. “We do want to put a chairlift up.”

That prospect is discussed in a letter from Oliver to Olympic National Park Superintendent David Morris, obtained last week by the Peninsula Daily News.
