Environmental groups have filed a new lawsuit against plans to expand the ski area at Mount Ashland in Southern Oregon.
The Ashland Daily Tidings reports the suit comes from the Sierra Club, Oregon Wild and the Center for Biological Diversity. They say the Forest Service's environmental and financial analysis of the expansion is outdated.
The agency approved the plan in 2004, and it has been the subject of a lawsuit and multiple appeals.
In August, a judge lifted an injunction that had blocked the expansion.
The association that runs the nonprofit ski area hasn't begun on-the-ground expansion work.
