Colorado Ski Country to assist Crested Butte with Snodgrass appeal

Posted By: The Ski Channel on December 29, 2009 7:32 am

Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) has filed a petition to intervene on Crested Butte‘s behalf with regards to their appeal of a recent US Forest Service decision denying expansion onto Snodgrass Mountain.

The petition, signed on behalf of 19 of the ski areas in the group, asks the Forest Service to reverse their decision and allow for a public review of Crested Butte’s plan under the National Environmental Policy Act.

Note the petition asks simply for the allowance of a public review of the building plans—it does not ask to allow for the expansion directly.
