You only have until this Saturday, Sept 3 at 5:00 PM MT to help SAVE THE CONFLUENCE. Please SPEAK UP FOR GRAND CANYON!

***
Dear James,
CALLING ALL CANYON & RIVER ADVOCATES — The unthinkable has happened. Legislation has been submitted within the Navajo Nation for the Grand Canyon Escalade proposal (421 acres of development above the sacred confluence of the Little Colorado and Colorado Rivers, with a gondola/tramway that could bring 10,000 people down to river level PER DAY). If approved, this massive development would FOREVER CHANGE GRAND CANYON!EVERYONE should please submit comments and speak out against this terrible proposal before the deadline which is 5:00 PM this Saturday Sept. 3rd!! Please spread the word far and wide through email and social media! We need YOUR help!

1. READ THE LEGISLATIVE PROPOSAL AT http://www.navajonationcouncil.org/Legislations/2016/AUG/0293-16.pdf
2. SIGN THE PETITION AGAINST THIS PROPOSAL! The petition link can be found at www.savetheconfluence.com (and please encourage others to support and follow the STC Facebook page, sign up for email alerts, etc.)
3. COMMENT DIRECTLY TO THE NAVAJO NATION! You can email directly to comments or you can mail comments to: Executive Director Office of Legislative Services P.O. Box 3390 Window Rock, AZ 86515 (928) 871-7590. Comments may be made in the form of chapter resolutions, letters, position papers, etc. Please include your name, position title, address for written comments; a valid e-mail address is required. Anonymous comments will not be included in the Legislation packet.

***
The bottom line is:

This is GRAND CANYON – one of the seven NATURAL wonders of the world. If the Navajo Nation government approves this development, the integrity of values for which Grand Canyon was created will be severely compromised and degraded FOREVER.

The Little Colorado River corridor and its confluence with the Colorado River is culturally and spiritually significant to ALL of the affiliated tribes who hold Grand Canyon sacred.

A fragile, delicately balanced ecosystem is at stake. Proposed development raises serious questions about water, sewage, noise, impacts to endangered species (such as the humpback chub that spawn in the Little Colorado River), dark skies and wilderness values.

Leitner-Poma will be building the new WiFi enabled Gondola at Vail

North side of Vail Mountain, and Vail Valley.

Image via Wikipedia

Good job Tom!

Leitner-Poma just announced it got the contract to build the new gondola at the Vail Ski area. See Leitner-Poma to build the state-of-the-art gondola in Vail to read the announcement. See Vail installing new Gondolas for the 50th Anniversary with WiFi for more information about the Gondola and Vail’s decision to put the new lift in.

Heated seats, Kenwood radio and Wi-Fi will be in each gondola cabin. Where else but Vail would this even be considered! “Like nothing on earth” will take on a new meaning.

The gondola will be ready for the 2012-2013 ski season which will also be Vail’s 50th anniversary.

Vail installing new Gondolas for the 50th Anniversary with WiFi

Loading other lifts with backpack and laptop should get exciting…..

Vail has announced it will be replacing the Vista Bahn Express Lift (#16) in Vail Village with a new gondola. Lift capacity will be increased by 40%.

The new gondola still needs approval from the Town of Vail and from the USFS, however I don’t expect that to be a problem.

Wow.
