Did you know that Mt. Ashland ski area has purchased a chairlift from Mt. Hood Meadows 6 years ago, but they have still not been able to install it? Why? Because of the activism of people opposed to any kind of development. Meanwhile, the skiers’ voice is rarely heard.

Similar struggles are going on at Anthony Lakes, Cooper Spur, Crystal Mountain, 49 North, Mt. Hood Meadows, Snoqualmie, and Timberline.

Timberline is trying to install a new express chairlift in the area between the current Pucci and Stormin' Norman chairlifts, to ease the congestion.

Mount Hood Meadows is trying to install snowmaking, storing some of the excess run-off water in plentiful years to be used during low-snow years.

If we snowsports enthusiasts don’t help, who will? The NWSCC has now established a new web page at the www.nwskiers.org web site, to make it easier for all of us to get more involved and to help the ski areas. To go directly to the Snowsport Advocates web page, it is: http://www.nwskiers.org/nwsa/index.htm

You will find descriptions of projects planned at these ski areas, and learn how you can help. For example, you’ll find sample letters to write and who to send them to.

Make your voice heard! The Forest Service needs to hear from people who actually use ski areas and want to see improvements. Too often, they don’t hear from us, and are instead inundated by letters from opponents of development!
