In a meeting with officials from the Lolo and Bitterroot National Forests on Thursday morning, businessman Tom MacClay’s plan for his Bitterroot Resort on Lolo Peak was rejected for the second time in nearly a decade.

Lolo National Forest spokesman Boyd Hartwig says MacClay’s proposal for a huge ski area with multiple runs, several chairlifts and a gondola to ferry skiers from the lodge to the ski hill did not meet the minimum guidelines to match the Forest Service’s master plan.

The Forest Service refused to amend the current forest plan to accommodate any of MacClay’s proposals. Hartwig says he doubts if MacClay can revise his plans to fit into any of the Forest Service guidelines.
