Statement from Nordic United on USFS Fee Changes
A public open house hosted by the Forest Service will take place on Tuesday August 30 th
Greetings Nordic United Members,
There are potential changes coming to winter usage in Cache Valley. The U.S. Forest Service
proposes to implement a new winter usage fee at Green and Smithfield Canyons, Sinks, Murray
Farm, and Tony Grove trailheads. Users can choose to purchase a $60 annual pass that allows
unlimited access to all winter trailheads or a $10 multiday or $20 weekly pass. Alternatively,
America the Beautiful pass can be purchased for $80, which also gives access to National Parks
and other Forest Service fee usage areas around the country.
The purpose of this correspondence is to encourage each of you to consider how these new fees
might affect your winter usage experience and submit a comment! The comment period ends
September 7th. You can submit a general comment to SM.FS.UWCFeeProp@usda.gov or
trailhead specific comment at this website:
The new fees will reshape the look of winter use in Cache Valley, please get involved and
make your voice heard!
