Friends of Ski Mining History

Sally Elliott

Local volunteers are having to spend time and money to remove garbage and graffiti from historic mine sites. 

Late last month, Sally Elliott the co-found of Friends of Ski Mining History joined a dozen others at the Alliance Mine building—located in Empire Canyon—at the very top of Daly Avenue, just past the water tower. In addition, Mountain Trails Foundation brought up a water truck and a high-pressure power washer to clean off the graffiti from the outside walls of the historic building. Elliot says they were surprised by the mess.
