Protesters have held signs and passed out leaflets outside businesses that held events for Arizona Snowbowl this week to celebrate the ski area’s 75 years of existence, the Arizona Daily Sun reports.
“There’s a large portion of the community that feels alienated because of Snowbowl’s actions,” said protester Grayson Lookner.
Altitudes Bar and Grill owner Lynda Fleischer said it was unfair to target her business when its celebratory event was for the ski area, not for the snowmaking.
“It affected my staff. It was very negative to their evening,” she said of the protest outside her business.
Seeking to boost business when Mother Nature didn’t provide enough snow for skiing, Snowbowl in December began using treated wastewater from Flagstaff to make snow.
