Ever since speculations began to surround the use of our backcountry in winter, the Crested Butte community has recognized the need to develop a survey which begins to collect information from the various voices in the valley. Thankfully, Western States MEMs (Master in Environmental Management) students, along with Brian Lieberman, have taken this on.
The intent of this survey is to gain some baseline data about the use of our winter backcountry and our goal is to get as many people to take this survey as possible. In order for all voices of our community to be represented, it is important that all winter backcountry users participate.
You will find the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/winter_backcountry_survey
The survey is relatively quick – only 20 questions. Submit your answers soon as this survey will only be open until April 9th (closing day at CBMR) at 11:30pm. Additionally, this survey only allows one response per device.
Please, take action and make your voice heard! Participate in the Gunnison Valley Winter Backcountry Survey. Let the community know your opinions about our local winter backcountry use!
