Title: Ski Area Definition--Land Uses, Special Uses 

This final rule codifies a nondiscretionary provision of the Ski Area Recreational Opportunities Act (Pub. L. 112-46). This final rule amends the definition of a ski area at 36 CFR 251.51 to note that other natural resource-based, seasonal, and year-round recreational uses and facilities may be authorized, provided that the primary purpose of the site remains skiing and other snow sports. This final rule will help meet the Administration's priority to improve service delivery, customer experience, and reduce administrative burdens for those accessing public benefits and services.
