The proposed project is located approximately 12 miles east of Wallace, Idaho, on National Forest System (NFS) lands within Shoshone County, Idaho, and Mineral County, Montana. DATES: Comments concerning the scope of the analysis must be received by May 5, 2014. The Draft EIS is expected to be available for public review in winter 2015 and the Final EIS is expected in summer 2016. ADDRESSES: Send written comments to SWCA Environmental Consultants, 1220 SW Morrison St., Suite 700, Portland, OR 97205. Comments may also be sent via email to comments-northernidpanhandle-coeur-dalene@fs.fed.us, via facsimile to (503) 224–1851, online through the project Web site at http:// www.fs.fed.us/nepa/fs-usdapop.php?project=43757, or in-person at the Coeur d’Alene River Ranger District, Fernan or Smelterville offices, or the Superior Ranger District. Include ‘‘Lookout Pass Ski Area Expansion Third-Party EIS’’ in the subject line. Comments submitted electronically must be searchable or readable with optical character recognition software. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Additional information related to the proposed project can be obtained from the project Web site, http:// www.fs.fed.us/nepa/fs-usdaSUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 pop.php?project=43757, by contacting the Lookout Pass Ski Area Expansion Third-Party EIS NEPA Contractor, Sue Wilmot, at (503) 224–0333 ext. 6324, or by emailing: swilmot@swca.com.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Purpose and Need for Action: The purpose of the proposed Lookout Ski Area Expansion is to provide a highquality downhill skiing recreational opportunity on the IPNFs and LNF. Lookout Pass ski terrain is insufficient to meet market demands, resulting in diminished recreational experiences and reduced economic viability for the ski area. In the Lookout Pass Ski and Recreation Area Master Development Plan, Lookout Pass specifically identified three social, economic, or physical factors that necessitate the development of additional terrain in order to ensure continued, publicly acceptable ski operations. These factors are (1) diminished skier experiences associated with overcrowding, increased skier congestion, decreased safe operating conditions, and inefficient skier transport during high-visitation days as well as inefficient skier transport and trail use on low-visitation days; (2) current ski terrain distribution that does not match market demand; and (3) concerns over the economic viability of Lookout Pass and its ongoing contribution to the local economy. Expansion of Lookout Pass would address these needs by providing more skiable terrain and more efficient lift systems to enable the ski area to remain economically viable while ensuring a high-quality recreation experience for a wider range and number of skiers. This action would move the ski area toward a desired condition outlined in the Idaho Panhandle National Forests Land Management Plan and the Lolo National Forest Plan and respond to the Forest Plans’ goals and objectives. Proposed Action: The IPNFs and LNF propose to expand the existing Lookout E:\FR\FM\04APN1.SGM 04APN1
