|This battle for Snodgrass Mountain is about more than
just development of another mountain or the real estate profits that only
a few stand to gain. This concerns the soul of a small place in the Colorado
Rockies named Crested Butte, a spunky little town whose Town Council voted
6-to-1 in opposition to the expansion proposal, where residents spoke passionately
about preserving the mountain in its current state.
We continue to believe that Snodgrass Mountain is more valuable to our
community by all measures: economic, environmental, recreational and
social. If you agree, we need your voice now.
|Let's let the Forest Service know we are not
|We are writing to ask YOU to write to the Forest
Service one more time before they make their decision whether or not to accept
the proposal. We’re suggesting two ways you can do this:
|1) Steward: Type your own email
to Charlie Richmond of the Forest Service. You can find talking
points and inspirational photos through our site to get you informed and pumped
up! We included our address on the email in order to keep track of how many
people contact Charlie. We will not use your letter for any purpose other than
tracking. If you do not wish us to receive a copy, please remove our address
from the "cc:" field. And if we thought we'd like to quote your letter,
we will contact you for permission.
|2) Defender: While thoughtful e-mails can be
helpful in swaying the agency, nothing works like a flood of actual letters
sent through the U.S. Mail! To be a Defender of Snodgrass, just email us
your mailing address, and we’ll send you a packet of information and
supplies for writing to the Forest Service. Perhaps you'd even like to invite
5 friends to a letter-writing party! If we can generate hundreds of letters
to the Forest Service - individual, thoughtful, heartfelt letters - then we
can turn the tide.
|3) Super Defender: Write a letter to Charlie
Richmond yourself. His address is on this page.

Friends are saying.

Forest Service WHY Snodgrass is valuable to you!
Thank you to all our Friends!
