Tribes appeal decision in Arizona snowmaking case
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - American Indian tribes are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review a lower court's decision that allows for snowmaking on an Arizona peak the tribes consider sacred.
The tribes met a deadline for an appeal in the Arizona Snowbowl case.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco cleared the way for the snowmaking last August after a years-long court battle.
The appeals court granted a request to delay any construction at the ski resort near Flagstaff until the high court decides if it will hear the tribes' appeal.
