The Sula Ranger District on the Bitterroot National Forest is seeking public comments on a proposed timber salvage project at the Lost Trail Powder Mountain Ski Area.  The purpose of the project is to harvest trees within the ski area that have been killed or attacked by the Mountain Pine Beetle (MPB).  The project isn’t proposed to take place until next summer with all the work occurring before the beginning of the 2012-2013 ski season. I spoke with Bitterroot National Forest Public Information Officer Todd McKay about the project. That interview is attached.

Public comments on the proposal are now being accepted.  Written, facsimile, hand-delivered, oral and electronic comments will be accepted through January 3, 2012. 

When submitting comments, please provide: (1) your name, address, and organization represented, if any; (2) reference the Lost Trail Ski Area Salvage Project; (3) information regarding the proposed action along with supporting reasons that you believe should be considered; and (4) your signature.

Submit written and oral comments to: Ruth M. Wooding – District Ranger, Sula Ranger District, 7338 Hwy 93 South, Sula, MT. 59871, (406) 821-2329 or FAX (406) 821-1211.
