I suppose they want to keep the military out so they can turn more land over to Boulder greenies to go backpacking in.

Wendy and her friends would love to have the greenies take over.

I thought that Scott McInnis had put a congressional hold on this longterm training area years ago. He was passionate about allowing the military to have permanent access to high quality training at altitude. He knew that it was very important for the pilots and crews to train at altitude.

If the army needs 6,000 hours then Wendy and friends should shut up and go away.

Personally, I'd be thrilled if I was backpacking and wandered into a helo training exercise... provided it wasn't "live fire", it'd be more exciting than watching a deer chomp flowers.

[Boulder greenies to go backpacking in.]

I went home over last summer and found large portions of the rock walls I used to frequent in Eldorado Canyon over 20 years ago are now mostly closed to climbing.  They were closed due to "Environmental concerns" related to birds that nest on the rock walls.
 
I don't know what their problem is with Helicopter training at high altitude - especially this time of year.   Spring is still months away above the timber line and everything is still covered with snow. 
 
You're right about the people's republic of Boulder though.  They'll do anything they can do to monkey-wrench the military.
