Description

This investigation shows how ski-resorts use federal land, such as national forests, but pay barely any rent to the government. In some of the more extreme cases, the resorts pay less than one cent per dollar. These low rents are in place because of a 1996 piece of legislation designed to make the renting laws simpler. Interestingly, that legislation was drafted by Arthur Anderson on behalf of the National Ski Areas Association.
