If you FREE ‘SKI’ RADICALS want to keep HELI-SKIING & that Greed Head out of previously denied (by the BLM) skiing terrain in the Silverton area, better start banging on your typer… COMMENTS DUE IN 4 WEEKS!!!

Silverton Mtn Guides expansion EA is out for viewing. If you have the time I encourage you to write your thoughts on this since you ‘The People’ have only 4 weeks to send in your letters thru email. Here is the link:

A group of concerned citizens/skiers/riders in Silverton have been following this for the past year. Their criticism stems around the fact that the original EA with T-ride Helitrax for the same terrain was denied by the BLM back in 2008 for probable user conflicts & impacts to lynx. Plus privatization of our public lands since the Brills history is to close off whole canyons for private use.

Fortunately, there is more support for being against the expansion & Silverton Mtn in general from Silverton skiers/snowboarders than there was years ago. I think locals are finally wising up to what they’re really about: privatization of our public lands for their benefit. If you appreciate and need true WILDERNESS experience you’d better pull out your pen or start banging on your typer and let those BLM folks know what’s up..
