The Forest Service is considering whether or not , or how, to allow an expansion of Lookout Pass ski area on the Idaho/Montana border. If you ski in the Stevens Peak area or other backcountry terrain off of Lookout Pass this is an important opportunity to speak up to protect your experience.
Enter information on where you backcountry ski. Sharing your skin tracks helps us identify high-priority lands and advocate for their protection. Create an account to map important backcountry ski areas and get access to information on backcountry skiing areas across the country.
Our public lands – millions of acres of forests, mountains, rivers, and plains – are a part of who we are. Right now, a group of powerful special interests are waging an aggressive campaign to sell off public lands in the west. They want to see our national lands privatized for short-term gain, at the expense of our shared American inheritance. This public land heist threatens hundreds of millions of acres of national forests, rangelands, wildlife refuges, parks, wilderness areas, and historic sites, but it also threatens the fundamental American notion that our public lands belong to everyone. Public lands exist for the good of all, not the profit of a few. Signing this petition is the first and most important step to show policymakers that voters support our public lands.
