Bristol Mountain Ski Resort in Ontario County, New York, is seeking a permit renewal from the state Department of Environmental Conservation to use water from Mud Creek in the nearby town of Canandaigua for snowmaking.
The resort, owned by Troser Management Inc., is not looking to increase its currently permitted withdrawal rate of 12,816,000 gallons per day.
In its renewal application, Troser is seeking to modify the expiration date of the permit to April 30, 2025, to allow for three full ski seasons of stream-flow data collection, as well as the removal of one condition and the addition of a new one.
