SkiLink… Or, How I stopped skiing and learned to love riding lifts

SkiLink is a proposed “transportation system” between two Utah resorts (Canyons and Solitude Mountain Resort). Creatively pitched as a mode of transportation, rather than a ski area expansion (resorts are known for elaborate PR schemes) in a failed attempt to soften the blow to locals who cherish the wildness and beauty of the Wasatch Range. With 3″ of fresh powder, a couple of us decided to fork over our hard earned cash ($96/person) to witness the idiosyncrasies of the proposed “transportation lift” nestled high above the mansions of “The Colony,” the exclusive gated community & terminus (or starting point) of SkiLink.
