SUMMARY: The Colville National Forest is planning to charge a $40.00 
rental fee for overnight use of the Snow Peak Shelter. The Snow Peak 
Shelter has been a popular destination for day and overnight use within 
Colville National Forest and the public has indicated that they would 
like continued use of this structure. Funds from the rental will be 
used for the operation and maintenance of the Snow Peak Shelter.

January 2009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Recreation Lands Enhancement Act 
(Title VIII, Pub. L. 108-447) directed the Secretary of Agriculture to 
publish a six-month advance notice in the Federal Register whenever new 
recreation fees are established. A market analysis indicates that the 
$40.00 per night rental fee is reasonable and acceptable for this 
unique recreational experience. This new fee will be reviewed by a 
Recreation Resource Advisory Committee prior to a final decision and 

Rick Brazell,
Forest Supervisor.
