I was just made aware of this issue and thought some of the kind folks at NS might have some opinions.
Apparently Snowbowl has just gained approval from the US Forest Service to expand their territory and they have proposed a plan to lengthen their season. This would involve clear cutting many acres of forest, much of which is considered sacred lands to several indigenous tribes. But wait, there's more! They want to use 100% reclaimed sewage water to make snow. I don't yet know how I feel about this. What does NS think?
