Utah’s ski industry leaders want to connect seven ski resorts in the Wasatch mountains. Ski Utah held a press conference Wednesday along with the general managers from the resorts to outline the interconnect concept.
Ski Utah President Nathan Rafferty says it’s not a specific plan yet, but a concept. They call it One Wasatch, and the goal is to create the most efficient and enjoyable interconnected mountain resort ski experience in North America.
Support for the SkiLink – a tram that would connect Park City with Big Cottonwood Canyon – appears to be fading away.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports members of Utah’s Congressional delegation have backed off their support for a bill to sell 30 acres of Forest Service land on the crest of the Wasatch Range for the SkiLink project . . . and a new management deal signed by the owners of the Canyons ski resort could also mean diminished interest in pursuing the idea.
