As the weather begins to get cooler and thoughts of snow start in everyone’s mind, not everyone dreads the white stuff. Casper Mountain offers a great opportunity to get out skiing, snow shoeing and even biking on groomed trails. Before you go, check out the conditions by viewing the webcams that are located at the Trails Lodge. You'll find current weather and the forecast so that you can better plan for your outing. But just don't view in the winter months. Watch the changing seasons year round. Visit the Casper Mountain Trails Center Weather Station or click on the webcam link from the County's home page.
On average, it takes around 4 feet of snow before the trails are ready for grooming. That much snow is needed before the groomer can safely traverse the trails by effectively covering stumps, rocks and other obstacles. Once enough snow has fallen and the County has groomed the trails, you will be ready to hit the trails and try out those new skis or snowshoes. Now all that is required is a trails pass. Anyone using the groomed trails on Casper Mountain is required to have a Trails Pass. Proceeds from the sales go to cover grooming costs.

Natrona County Development Department has hired a consultant to update its 2016 Development Plan with a Natural Resource Plan (revision of Chapter 7).
The most recent Development Plan for Natrona County was adopted in 2016 and is intended to be a living document with review every five years and updated every twenty (20), or as need to reflect changing conditions and values.
The consultant will review and provide a report of the existing Development Plan adopted in 2016, Chapter 7 specific, and the primary changes that are necessary.
The objective of this process is to update the Development Plan by re-evaluating the existing Federal and State Land Use Policy (Chapter 7) and providing updates as needed to comply with W.S. 9-4-218, as amended by House Bill 54.
The purpose of the update is to provide a reliable planning resource to guide the Citizens, Development Department, and Governing Body in the future decisions on land use, development and infrastructure investment.
