Attention please! Your access to our public lands is under attack! Did you know that hybrid skiers and snowboarders as well as snowmobilers are battling access issues throughout the country? Winter Travel Management Plans are currently being developed in National Forests in California, Wyoming, and Montana; some of these areas could potentially loose 50 to 80% of the land they access via snowmobile and other over-snow vehicles. Fact: organizations such as the Winter Wildlands Alliance sued the National Forest, requiring them to establish Winter Travel Management Plans, without an increase in funding to help develop the plans or enforcement of them. These first Winter Travel Management Plans are especially important because they will pave the way for those in our remaining National Forests, including ours!
Share the Slate invites one and all to our annual public meeting Thursday, December 5th, at 6 pm, at the Talk of the Town in Crested Butte. Please join us for our typical Brick Oven pizza and FREE beer (courtesy of the Talk). We also will be having a new format – a TRIVIA round with prizes for teams who win! Come learn about Share the Slate, what we do, and other interesting information regarding winter travel management in the Gunnison Valley. See you all on Thursday!
