Outdoor enthusiasts in Central Oregon may get a new snow park soon. The Deschutes National Forest is taking comment on the Kapka Butte Sno Park proposal near the Mount Bachelor ski area.   Spokesperson Jean Nelson Dean says the park would allow for skiers to recreate with their dogs and meet other popular recreational needs. "There's some great things about this we got a federal enhancement grant of about $450,000. It’s a very unique opportunity. The State has limited new Sno Parks and this will allow this into their system and so they would do all the snow plowing in the snow park and thru the snow park fees. The park also addresses the key issues of relieving parking congestion at Dutchman Flats Sno Park, and allowing both motorized and non-motorized users at the site during the winter.
