As many of you know, White Pass is very small. As you also may know, there is a very lage area that we own, but cannot expand into. This area, hogback is 700 acres of awesome cascade terrain. lots of powder, and awesome skiing. Expansion has been stopped because of enviromental concerns. The decision to expand will be going to court. White Pass needs our help. Comments about expansion will be accepted at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please help out. Explain how the expansion is a great idea, and how it can benefit the local area. There is an article in Thursdays (the 20th) News Tribune in South Sound, second page. Here is what it says:
The US Forest Service is seeking public expansion of the White Pass ski area. the White Pass Company, which operates the ski area about 55 miles west of Yakima under a special use permit issued by the Forest service, wants to add about 700 acres or Hogback Basin. The new area would have two chair lifts, a midmountain day lodge and parking at the base. Comments on the proposed expansion may be emailed until Jan. 5 to email@example.com
Even if you do not ski at White Pass, if you feel that the sport would benefit from this, pass your comments along.
Live for something, or you'll die for nothing.
