The Bureau of Land Management Uncompahgre Field Office is seeking public comment on a proposal from the Cimarron Mountain Club for a special recreation permit to conduct commercially guided hikes, snowshoeing, skiing, snowboarding, and avalanche mitigation on public lands in Montrose County.
The CMC is a private club and residential community in the south San Juan Mountains, 10 miles northeast of Ridgway.
It is seeking to lead year-round commercial trips on two BLM parcels, totaling approximately 3,475 acres. These activities would cease during the elk calving season from May 1 through June 15. The permit would not prevent access for the general public. Trips would vary in frequency and party size depending on the activity and weather conditions.
