Utah Moves Toward Connecting Ski Resorts

March 8, 2012 By: Adam Leposa

The Utah State Senate and House of Representatives have passed a bill urging the development of a low-impact inter-resort transportation system connecting the state’s 14 ski resorts. The bill is currently awaiting the signature of Utah Governor Gary Herbert.

The bill, drafted by Senator Wayne Niederhauser (R-Sandy), argues that connecting the state’s ski resorts would enhance the ski and snowboard industry’s contribution to the local economy.

"Utah is uniquely positioned to create a ski and snowboard experience available nowhere else in North America," said Nathan Rafferty, president of local trade organization Ski Utah. "This resolution urges interconnection of the seven Salt Lake and Summit County ski resorts using best environmental practices."

"Although widely seen in Europe, a connection of this scale does not exist in North America," Rafferty continued. "From a marketing and skier experience perspective, this would be a game-changer."
