Sen. Wyden Urges Mt. Bachelor To Drop 'Fast Tracks' Pass

(Washington, D.C.) -- U.S. Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon is calling on the owner of the Mt. Bachelor ski resort to drop its "Fast Tracks" pass. It costs at least 49 dollars, on top of the regular ticket, and allows the skier to skip the waiting line at chair lifts. Wyden says it causes inequitable access to public lands. Mt. Bachelor has a U.S. Forest Service Special Use permit which allows them to be located at the mountain. Wyden says snow sports are expensive enough and difficult for financially disadvantaged families to afford.
