Advertising on public land?

The Forest Service is considering changing the rules for advertising on public land. Right now, almost all advertising is banned, but ski areas (most of which lease land from the Forest Service) have been pushing for rules that let them advertise to skiers and snowboarders on chairlifts. Think placards on lift poles, etc.

People have until Monday to comment on the rule change.

If you want to let the Forest Service know what you think about billboards at ski areas, send a letter to USDA Forest Service, Attn: Carolyn Holbrook, Recreation and Heritage Resources Staff (2340), 1400 Independence Ave. S.W., Stop 1125, Washington, DC 20250-1125. Or send a fax to Holbrook at 1-202-205-1145, or an e-mail to
