JACKSON, Wyo. \u2014 The Bridger-Teton National Forest has extended the comment period on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for Snow King Mountain's on-mountain improvements.\r\n\r\nComments will now be accepted until March 31.\r\n\r\nThe original deadline was March 16.\r\n\r\nJackson town councilors expressed frustration with the Forest Service last week and agreed to send a letter asking for more options and more time to digest the 255-page document.\r\n\r\n\u201cI have heard from a few members of the community that the extra time to comment would be useful,\u201d said Acting Jackson District Ranger Rob Hoelscher. \u201cI am interested in making certain that all work on this project is transparent and our specialists want to answer any lingering questions that may need to be addressed,\u201d he said.\r\n\r\nFind the Draft EIS on the Forest Service website,\u00a0 under the "Analysis" tab. Public comments are accepted online.\r\n\r\nThe Jackson Ranger District will hold an open house for the public on Wednesday, March 18 for an opportunity to look at the Draft EIS and visit with specialists from 4:30-6:30 p.m. The open house will be held at the Jackson Ranger District Office at 340 N.
