Consider winter grooming

Dear Editor:I applaud all concerned for the new Brush Creek bike path being completed. It will be an enormous benefit. I understand that it will not be groomed in the winter for cross country skiing. I would like to request reconsideration of that possibility. Adding to the cross country ski trail program would allow access from the intercept lot to the Snowmass trails. I noted the concern for the impact on wildlife, but the trail is so close to Brush Creek Road at every point that it is hard to see any additional impact from a few isolated skiers and grooming equipment.Gerald GraysonBrush Creek Village
