The Spirit Mountain Recreation Area Authority can increase its board from seven to nine members.
Gov. Tim Pawlenty signed the new law April 1. It takes effect upon approval by the City of Duluth, and specifies the two new board terms will initially be four years, then revert to three-year terms.
The Duluth ski area plans to offer four-season activities to draw more tourism, according to Rep. Roger Reinert (DFL-Duluth), who sponsors the law with Sen. Yvonne Prettner Solon (DFL-Duluth). More members will help the board carry an increased workload accompanying its expansion plans.
