ASPEN, Colo. (AP) – The Aspen Skiing Co. has withdrawn a plan for Nordic ski jumps at the Buttermilk Ski Area.

The jumps had been part of the amended Buttermilk Mountain master plan, which the company submitted to Pitkin County for approval in March.

According to the Aspen Daily News, the company is scaling back expansion plans as debate continues over a new master plan being debated later this month.
