Law makes year-round operations easier for ski areas

No snow? No problem for three Arizona ski resorts on federal land that will now have an easier time operating slopeside activities year-round. President Obama on Monday signed a law making it easier for such facilities to operate in the summer — activities such as mountain biking and disc golf — without having to go through extensive paperwork first.

I am a U of A Landscape Architecture grad, so I’m a huge fan of enhancing access to outdoor recreation for the public. It is great to see this development, and I hope that ski areas will invest and find creative ways to woo the public to utilize their fantastic outdoor resources… we need those places so we can regularly retreat for rest and renewal!
