Wolverines could halt backcountry ski business

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -- The Bureau of Land Management says an environmental analysis must be done before a new permit can be issued to a backcountry ski operator hoping to use tracked vehicles to take clients into the St. Joe Mountains in northern Idaho.

BLM spokeswoman Stephanie Snook says the area is known habitat for wolverines, classified as a sensitive species by the agency.

Carey and Ryan Stanley purchased Peak Adventures last year with the plan of operating the backcountry ski business on 13,000 acres of public land.

The couple says they spent their life savings buying the business that operated in the area for 17 years and a new tracked vehicle after speaking with the BLM.

Snook tells The Spokesman-Review that the agency has to determine if commercial use of the area is still compatible with the agency's objectives adopted in 2007.

Thats really suck for them, but they prob pushed for recreational snowmobilers to be banned because of the wolverine so they could have sole use of the 13000 acres.
