ASPEN, Colo. (November 27, 2013) Uphill skiing is growing in popularity and could soon be growing in price, too.
Uphill skiers leave the lifts behind, strapping “skins” on their skis for traction and climbing the hills.
But the U.S. Forest Service is working on new regulations that would allow ski areas that lease public lands to charge the fitness fanatics who like to ski the hard way.
The Forest Service, however, is also encouraging ski areas to provide access to some slopes without a fee.
