A new proposal could bring more hiking and climbing to the Taos Ski Valley.

The Carson National Forest is looking for public input on a proposal to install a series of via ferratas in the Kachina Bowl area.

A via ferrata is a protected climbing and hiking route that uses steel cables, iron rungs, pegs and ladders for climbers and hikers. 

If no significant environmental effects are anticipated, the project could be approved as soon as this spring.
