Petition to Reinstate Winter Access From 9990 Backcountry Gate

Pre-mitigation-work_0.jpg

On The Mountain Life, Pete and Lynn discuss Vail's announcement to hault winter backcountry access from the 9990 lift. 

There is still access to Square Top and Dutch Draw from the Peak 5 gate, however it would require a greater amount of hiking.

This decision has left many with mixed feelings, and there is a petition to reinstate backcountry access from the Park City ridgeline.  

Coming into the KPCW studios to talk about this with Pete and Lynn are long-time Parkites Charlie Sturgis, Roy Crandall, and Matt Linden.
