Judge William Martinez ruled Wednesday that the government violated its own procedures, failed to evaluate the economic impact and violated ski area rights. 

Martinez sided with the National Ski Areas Association, which sued over the new water rights permit rules. 

According to the Denver Post, Martinez sent the case back to the Forest Service to resolve those issues. The Forest Service had no immediate reaction to the ruling.
