Wolf Creek on hold

From the AP:

A planned ski village should remain on hold long enough to give environmental groups a chance to have their lawsuit seeking to block construction heard in court, a federal magistrate recommended.

Federal Magistrate Judge David West recommended that a preliminary injunction blocking the development at the base of the Wolf Creek ski area be extended until the lawsuit by Colorado Wild and the San Luis Valley Ecosystem Council moves through court.

A preliminary injunction was set to expire June 15.

“Obviously, this is good news after three years,” said Brad Bartlett, a Durango attorney representing the environmental groups.

Bartlett conceded that it “could be a while” before the groups’ lawsuit against the U.S. Forest Service makes it to court.

The Village at Wolf Creek could eventually include 222,100 square feet of commercial space and enough housing for up to 10,500 people.
