For Mt. Spokane expansion


I am in favor of the Mt. Spokane backside expansion. This will open up 80 new acres of powder for skiers and boarders. I am an avid snowboarder and spend most of my winter days on the slopes at Mt. Spokane.

Some people are worried about the natural habitat being taken away. The majority of people are going to be there in the winter, when most of the wildlife isn’t even there. In the summer, hundreds of animals already call the runs home while very few people are up there compared with the number of people in the winter.

The animals have hundreds of acres to explore all around the Mt. Spokane area. I think they’ll be fine with the expansion.
