FRISCO, CO, Dec. 14, 2012 (Local News) - A nonprofit environmental group is teaming up with Arapahoe Basin to explore the idea of using bark-beetle affected timber as an energy source.

A-Basin chief operating officer Alan Henceroth called the alternative fuel source "fascinating." However, before moving forward, A-Basin will conduct an energy audit and feasibility study, he said.
