Skiers are the least of the problem, because they are concentrated in a small area. Have you ever tried to get a parking space at a Big Cottonwood trailhead on a sunny July Saturday? Your choices are to be there by 6AM, hike a half mile extra along the road, or give up. I love our canyons and mountains, but anyone with two eyes can see they are being loved to death.
I HATE to say this, but we need a quota system. So many groups of hikers/bikers/campers in a particular area or trail, and then we are done for the day. It would get more people into secondary areas that don't see as much use now, and preserve our canyons for our children and grandchildren.

Perhaps by improving the trails and trailheads in secondary areas we would disperse the usage over a greater area.
