Response to Snow Machines, Clear Cutting and More Ski Trails Controversy at Arizona Snowbowl


FLAGSTAFF - Arizona Snowbowl can use reclaimed wastewater to make snow, District Judge Paul Rosenblatt ruled late Wednesday.

Snowbowl would be allowed to begin construction on snowmaking infrastructure immediately barring an injunction and further legal appeals by tribes and environmental groups.

The Flagstaff Activist Network and Save the Peaks Coalition vowed to appeal the case to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and ask for such an injunction.

Snowbowl has said it would like to have snowmaking for the winter of 2006-2007.

The Coconino National Forest supervisor applauded the judge's decision.

"We have worked very hard on this important project that serves as a valid use of national forest land," Nora Rasure said in a statement.
