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.
Howie Garber came to Utah to go to medical school and worked as an emergency room physician after he graduated from medical school in 1980. Through the years, he's taken thousands of photographs of the Wasatch Mountains in Salt Lake County, and this month he's publishing many of them in a new book, Utah's Wasatch Range -- Four Season Refuge. Though the pictures are stunning, it's more than just a coffee table book.
