What investments should we be doing to make this industuy continues to thrive?

 

That was the subject of this month's City Club of Central Oregon meeting.

 

Dave Rathbun with Mt. Bachelor was on the panel and singled out forest management.

 

"The ski industry - until there is some other means of funding how to suppress wildfires and how to manage our forests so they're healthy, we're always going to be short in rerceational dollars."

 

Panel members agreed going forward, they have to work together.

 

"As time goes by we have to do a good job of collaborating and make sure we are making the best use of our resources for the benefit of all -- and not just your little piece of it.  And  we're probably  have to break ground on making everyone happy."

 

Hiking and biking are two of the biggest draws to central Oregon, followed by shopping, dining, cycling, beer drinking, golf and fishing.
