    To "LDS Liberal" tell us, how can the governor make ski lift tickets more affordable?

    You can go to Wolf Mountain for $37 for an all day pass. How is that not affordable?

    Do you really mean that you want to go to the premium resorts for budget prices?

    To "Baron Scarpia" in doing some looking around, there are companies that have relocated to Utah specifically because of the recreational opportunities here. That is what brought the company Liberty Mountain to Utah, and is why Black Diamond remains. The few weeks of bad air are not a problem for most companies.

    Utah has a reputation for bad air quality, especially during the winter months. It is hurting our ability to attract new industry and jobs to the state, and it is hurting tourism.

    Another challenge is the state's focus on energy development to the detriment of outdoor recreation, hunting, fishing, and other activities that attract tourists.

    "Pot Tourism" like Colorado has now will further boost Skiing and leave Utah and it's liquor laws in last place.

    But I don't Gov. Herbert or the State will bend to accommodate that.

    Perhaps dropping prices 50%-75% and making ski lift tickets more affordable to the masses will help?...
