FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — A popular snow-play area northwest of Flagstaff has decided to discontinue its operations.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports (http://bit.ly/2tNwwsf ) Recreation Resource Management has removed all its structures and amenities from Wing Mountain.

The Forest Service announced Wednesday that the company had requested a cancellation of its special use permit.

The service states no other concessionaire will operate at the site in the Highway 180 corridor this coming winter and parking will not be allowed there.

The service plans to begin public outreach in 2018 to gather feedback on what recreational experiences the public desires for the Wing Mountain and to consider community concerns about traffic congestion and related issues.
