SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court said on Wednesday that it would reconsider its decision that barred an Arizona ski resort from using treated sewage to make snow on a mountain sacred to several Native American tribes.

The long-running case has pitted economic and leisure interests against the beliefs of American Indian tribes, with both sides winning at various stages of the litigation.
