The driving force behind installing a chairlift at Hurricane Ridge has again voiced its support of such a device.
But critics suggest development at Hurricane Ridge should be curbed, not expanded.
It’s a debate that’s likely to rage on as Olympic National Park continues its 20-year planning process, which will culminate in the next three years with the implementation of a General Management Plan.
That plan — or “road map,” to steal a term from the Bush administration — will drive park management for the next two decades, answering such questions as what roads should be maintained and whether or not Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort should be kept intact.
Those are just two of the other issues currently on the table.
