If you want to comment on Vail Resorts’ proposed Golden Peak expansion, then you must speak your piece directly to the U.S. Forest Service.
Trolling social media comment sections does not count as a comment.
Both supporters and detractors of the plan to add 42 acres of race training at the top of Golden Peak have been firing shots on social media sites.
The forest on April 10 released its draft environmental impact statement for the project, which was proposed about a year ago. The Forest Service said the plan fits within Vail’s permitted uses.
“For a comment to be officially submitted and for the commenter to have standing in the objection process, they need to submit the comment to the Forest Service via one of the official methods,” explained Kate Jerman, public affairs officer with the White River National Forest.
People can comment on the project through May 21. For details visit the White River National Forest website and click on the Golden Peak Improvements Project link. And unlike most social media sites, they need your name and address and phone number if you expect to be taken seriously.
