SALT LAKE CITY — Despite concerns about environmental impacts, Utah lawmakers have endorsed the idea of connecting seven ski resorts in the Park City area and the Cottonwood canyons.
The House passed a resolution Tuesday supporting the concept of linking Park City Mountain Resort, The Canyons, Deer Valley, Brighton Solitude, Alta and Snowbird. The Senate approved it last week.
"This is not about a specific proposal or a specific study," Rep. Ryan Wilcox, R-Ogden, said of SCR10.
Rep. Marie Poulson, D-Salt Lake, called the resolution premature because the impact on the watershed and traffic are not known. She noted that Big and Little Cottonwood canyons were off limits for the 2002 Winter Games for those reasons.
Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker and Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon oppose the ski-connect proposal.
