The Cold Springs Canyon project is located in both USFS and BLM areas, and completely within the current Sun Valley Ski Area Special Use Permit. It was submitted as an amendment to the existing Sun Valley Master Plan, which was approved in 2007. Field work will begin this summer with an environmental assessment, then construction slated to begin as early as summer 2018.
