Default Another Utah Ski Link Article

Informative piece by Andrew McLean. If you are for the Ski Link please kill yourself. I mean that in the nicest way possible. This will eliminate so much fun terrain in BCC I have learned about this year. As well as a few lines I really want to hit in LCC.

Call your elected public official if you live in Utah.

I read Andrew's write up a couple of days ago. It is bs. The Cottonwoods are going to become all pay to play on your "public lands" if all of this is allowed to be ram rod through. Total BS.

On a side note, if the outdoor industry in Utah is serious about stopping this, companies like BD and Backcountry.com should in no uncertain terms let them know that their operations are going to move out of state if this goes through. That would be a huge monetary loss that I am sure no one in the legislative arm of the state would like to see.

public lands- always the first to get targeted. selling off the bc to the freaking moosefuckers no less who have zero will or incentive to allow some form of free access. makes me sick. i hope you guys can stop it.

here's another blurb on it from transworld.

Looks like it's a done deal.
Utah legislature passes resolution to connect ski resorts - ESPN
I hope there are some more road blocks that can get tossed up, but it looks like big business wins again.

Hopefully next season is a good one for the Intermountain West. I'd like to go touring in the Cottonwoods one last time, before a major chunk of it is all fucked up thanks to these douches.

NO!!!! I hadn't heard that it was passed. That ruins my day. A lot of people here do not understand my frustration with the entire mess. They tell me the Wasatch is huge. All I can do is laugh at them. The wasatch is tiny and gets smaller and smaller each year.

Well the governor has yet to sign it as of the article. I get the feeling that the chances are better that he'd choose to do away with the Zion Curtain, than not sign this bill...

Just saw that straightchuter posted a nice little video showing all the land we'll end up losing if skilink makes it through.

It is quite unbelievable what Talisker wants to do. They are really trying to strong arm their way into having a major development that benefits them and robs the taxpayer at their expense of course. That is prime land they wish to develop. On top of that they are also pulling that grab with PCMR to strengthen their gains. It's all making a lot of sense now.
