Copper Mountain Resort, shown here, was developed before lands were withdrawn. Some new claims were staked, and the permit holder needed to resolve a problem which could have been prevented had the lands been withdrawn earlier. 5. FOREST HEALTH Long term forest health is essential to the long term viability of both the ski resorts and dependent resort communities. One only needs to look at photographs of western mountains 100 years ago to recognize the incredible changes that occur over a relatively short period of time. Ski area permits are issued for periods of up to 40 years, and many ski areas have been operating for over 50 years. Maintaining forest health on the ski areas requires a long term commitment and implementation of sound vegetation management practices. Maintaining tree health is only a part of the process. Maintaining an overall ecological balance throughout the entire permitted area will tend to minimize losses from insect and disease outbreaks and from fire. Tree thinning practices which regulate the tree stocking density of tree cover next to ski trails can help maintain vigorous forests. Hazards from insect and disease activity should be managed on a drainage basis in order to maximize area benefits in maintaining forest health. Change in nature is a constant variable. The most dramatic changes in nature are brought about by forest pests, fire, and man's activities. The amount and types of fuels in an area provide insight about wildfire risk. This risk can be reduced over a period of time through effective fuel treatment. High fire season risk because of weather is less predictable....
