SKIING — The Idaho Panhandle National Forests has scheduled a meeting today to discuss the proposed Lookout Pass Ski Area expansion.
 
The meeting is set for 5 p.m. at the Forest Service office in Smelterville, Idaho.
  
The Forest Service and Lookout Pass Ski Area are taking additional public comment as officials as they begin processing the application to expand the area for the ski resort's special use permit.
 
Representatives from various backcountry user groups have been invited to give their insights, said John Latta of the Spokane Mountaineers. Of particular concern the backcountry skiers is a plan to expand lift assisted skiing to the Copper Lake basin.
