Snowmass prescribed burn canceled

A prescribed burn scheduled in Snowmass Village has been canceled due to dry conditions.

The Snowmass-Wildcat Fire Protection District had plans to burn slash piles leftover from wildfire mitigation projects last summer over the course of this week in an area off Sinclair Road. However, conditions were too dry as of Tuesday for the department to move forward with the burn.

“That just goes to demonstrate how quickly this area can dry up even with all of the moisture we have had in recent weeks,” said Fire Marshal John T. Mele.
