According to a report from Vail Daily, the US Forest Service has ordered Keystone Resort to cease their project to construct a new chairlift in the Bergman Bowl area that was meant to increase skiable terrain on the mountain. The order comes after an unauthorized road was constructed in fragile alpine terrain during the project, something the resort blamed on miscommunication.

At this point, the next step will be finding a remedy to the situation. A representative of the US Forest Service was quoted as saying "I'm confident we'll be able to work through this, but it's serious."
