Judge asked to stop construction at Arizona Snowbowl

Flagstaff, Arizona (AP) July 2010

A lawyer representing snowmaking opponents has asked a judge to temporarily prohibit construction at the Arizona Snowbowl ski resort.

Attorney Howard Shanker filed a request for a temporary restraining order on July 6 with a U.S. District Court judge. The action comes after the July 2nd decision by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to allow snowmaking and related construction on the San Francisco Peaks, an approval that becomes effective next week.

ShankerÂ’s tribal clients failed to prevail in court in arguing that making snow with reclaimed wastewater on the sacred San Francisco Peaks violated their religious freedom. Shanker has another court hearing next week with new plaintiffs to contest the potential health and safety risks of using reclaimed wastewater on ski slopes.
