Crested Butte Mountain Resort and the Forest Service on Snodgrass: It’s time to meet and talk

|The two sides will meet—eventuallyThe Snodgrass issue appears to be in wait-and-see mode. Both Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) and regional U.S. Forest Service officials agree there will be a meeting between the two, but no date has been set and the meeting isn’t likely to occur in any hurry.
U.S. Forest Service chief Tom Tidwell’s office last week upheld previous agency decisions to not allow lift served ski expansion onto Snodgrass, as proposed by CBMR. The original decision was made by Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forest (GMUG) supervisor Charlie Richmond last fall. The Tidwell ruling was the final administrative appeal on the matter and CBMR is now weighing its future options.
