I got an email from the forest service today saying that they are going to open up a 30 day public comment period. This will make the final decision on what happens. Make your voices heard! Here is a link with directions on how to comment.

Bporter83 - Thanks for being on it. It is public now and is offically public next week once posted in local newspaper. Follow the link to find all info. The timeline has now begun.
I will keep this and other forums posted with more up to date info now that there is more up to date info. Thanks for hanging in there, this is the process nothing we can do about it but keep pushing it along.

I may be stupid, but where are we supposed to post these comments? I didn't see anything on the FS link unless we are just supposed to send an email...

Email is the way.

Hey Joel. Do me a favor and let me know what should be included in my e-mail to the forest service. Specifically what should be in the subject line. If I should send my e-mail to any ones attention. Comments I can include in the body of the e-mail or better yet just a generic e-mail that is easy for any one to cut and paste to just show support for the project. I am a mountain biking truck driver with not a lot of time or patience for government so any suggestions you have would be appreciated. Thanks. It sure will be nice to start spending some of my money close to home and not dealing with a border crossing.

You can email comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
We thought about doing a templated email but it will not do a lot for the cause. Comments that show support and are meaniful will have some impact. What it will do for local communities, riders, businesses, etc. "Dude that will be sick" shows support but doesn't do much for the FS. Which sucks because it will be sick!

this is what i wrote them:
Hi, my name is Brandon Willems and I am new to the Seattle Tacoma area. I grew up mountain biking in beautiful Colorado. I quickly learned that while I loved riding cross county with my friends, my true love for biking came from freeride and downhill! Soon, I began riding at all of Colorado's lift accessed riding spots (i.e. Keystone, Vail, Winter Park, Sol Vista).
As I grew older, I realized that the crumbly dry soil or the Rockies weren't cutting it for my riding style. So I moved to beautiful Washington and have loved what I have found. Only one problem, no lift accessed riding. So naturally I spend all of my money on trips to Whistler. $150 in gas, $40 for a lift ticket, $20 for food, all of witch is pouring into Canada's economy and not our own. I know that not only I, but all of my riding buddies and most of the riding community, would take advantage of a Freeride/Downhill park right in our own back door in beautiful Stevens Pass. Why loose all of our economic potential to overcrowded lines in Whistler? Every year thousands of Washingtonians make the trip to Whistler to ride there beautiful park. It goes without saying that many of those thousands would be just as happy to stay within our borders and ride Stevens Pass Bike Park!
I hope to ride there myself in the future!
Just tryin to let them know how all of us have needed this for so long. Everyone knows Washington has the sickest shore riding in the U.S.
lets add some life accessed riding to that!!!

Hey Joel. I guess this is what I was looking for. http://evergreenmtb.org/php/show_page.php?page_id=304 Any one looking to e-mail the Forest Service might want to give this a once over.

Just wrote them. Got an email telling me they are considering my comments. I Believe there's around a week left to submit your comments.
Posted: Jan 12, 2010 at 16:07
apparently it doesnt matter about comments anymore

Hey all. Recently received a link to this
rather exciting if you ask me. Just proof that this is moving forward in a positive direction. Remember that January 17th is the cutoff for comments to the forest service, make your voices heard.
