Rep. Cheney Introduces Heli-skiing Bill
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming U.S. Rep Liz Cheney has introduced a bill to increase the number of days that heli-skiing is allowed in wilderness-quality land south of Teton Pass.
Cheney's bill would amend the Wyoming Wilderness Act and supersede a 2006 federal court opinion that limits the number of skiers commercial helicopters can ferry into the Palisades Wilderness Study Area.
A panel of Teton County residents has been considering what to do with Palisades and other federal lands.
The News and Guide reports that Cheney was with family over the holiday weekend and wasn't available for an interview.
