Controled Burning at Winter Park Resort

It may look like Winter Park is on fire, but fear not, it is a controlled burn that will help create a fire break between the town of Winter Park and the ski area.

The project is called the Tunnel Hill Fuel Project and consists of 20,000 slash piles. Under normal circumstances, the Colorado Air Pollution Control Division permits burning 250 piles a day, but a special permit has been issued to allow 1000 piles a day to be burned. The US Forest Service hopes to burn half of the piles during a 10-12 day period.
