"Following the science" has become a popular meme. Certainly, many activities impact the forest. So why then is this thread about just one type of "trail development?"

As Wldrns points out,...

Nice!

Up here in Keene at about 2300' the surface was nice powder; no crust layer but a bit heavier underneath. Maybe 10" of cover; not quite enough to cover the rough spots, but still fun to ski.

I think the project was to remediate the underground fuel oil spill from earlier decades. I don't think the tailings pile is involved in the remediation.
