Indians, enviros oppose White Pass ski expansion 9-07

Yakima, Washington (AP)
Yakama Indians and the Sierra Club are challenging plans to expand the White Pass ski area.

They are appealing the Forest Service decision to allow the ski area to double in size. If the Forest Service can’t resolve the dispute it could go to federal court.

The tribe says the area where the ski resort would expand, the Hogback basin, has cultural and spiritual significance to the tribe. The Sierra Club says the environmental study for the expansion was inadequate.
