Dear U.S. Forest Service,
I have several concerns relating to the DEIS analyzing the proposed expansion of Eldora Mountain Resort beyond current boundaries. I believe alternatives presented in the DEIS will have negative impacts on wildlife migration and habitat, water quality, safety, and on backcountry recreation.
