Snowboarding is not currently allowed at Alta. For One Wasatch to be a completed, Alta will have to permit snowboarding. Perhaps One Wasatch is at best a thinly veiled ploy for Alta to permit snowboarding and save face with its hard-core skier base. Otherwise, One Wasatch will have to be renamed One-Half Wasatch.

There is no other place in the world that has an excellent economic growth engine with such easy access to the great outdoors. Over the last 40 years I have watched as ski resorts and associated development expanded their boundaries and took away pristine backcountry terrain. My various crews of ski buddies have certainly enjoyed the access to new terrain...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

This study will also look at reducing traffic by better coordinating with the area’s mass transit, biking and walking — and even changing land-development patterns to put more people near transit stations or to make neighborhoods more walkable.

Two sets of lifts are envisioned in a conceptual plan to be released Tuesday, said Nathan Rafferty, president and CEO of Ski Utah, marketing arm for the state’s ski industry. The first set, connecting Little Cottonwood and Big Cottonwood canyons, would require Alta Ski Area to install a lift up Grizzly Gulch to the ridgeli...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
