Let's hope it passes the Senate as well. Could spell good news for your local mountain (more trails!).

This would be great. From what I understand, the Forest Service is a real PITA to deal with in terms of getting new trails, even new sections of existing trails, approved. It seems resorts on NF land will have a hard time competing with somewhere like Whistler for tourist dollars (=jobs) if their growth is hindered so badly. I think this is also why Keystone hasn't built any new trails in the past few years.

Good job on getting the ball rolling, Hick.

The bill passed. Time to build some trails!
