A man in Custer County is seeking permission from county officials to open a ski area near Bishop's Castle.
Terry Cook said his family used to run a rope tow in the area and he would like to install a chairlift. He has bought a double chairlift and slope groomer from Bogus Basin in Idaho.
The plan also calls for construction of a lodge that would house a small restaurant and ski rental operation.
He hopes to be open this winter.
