Even if he signs the order, though, he said he’ll accept proposals for keeping the site open. In April 2015, Fischer announced that he would close Skinny Dipper because of concerns about human health, safety and the degradation of nature around the hot springs, about 4 miles east of Banks in the Idaho mountains north of the South Fork of the Payette River.
