DENVER (AP) - A man is facing charges on allegations that he charged cross-country skiers to stay in a cabin near Berthoud Pass in Clear Creek County that he didn’t own.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/1ZPXOZ9 ) that Christian “Moe” Rison was charged Tuesday with occupying or using a residence on national forest lands.

Court documents say Rison moved his belongings into the federally owned First Creek Ski Cabin and would stay there for months at a time. Skiers are permitted to stay at the cabin on Arapaho National Forest for free, but reports say Rison charged skiers $10 a night to stay with him.

Rison was also cited in 2014 for occupying the same property.

A current phone number for Rison could not be found Tuesday night.
