This project was a conflicted issue. I love skiing. I have ridden Alta and Brighton for years and enjoy the facilities and ability they provide to me and to millions of others. I also love skiing in the backcountry.
But I found that the industry that I was a part of was also pushing beyond what I have learned to be acceptable for the environment and “wilderness.” Values that I also love are being destroyed at a rate that I find very troubling.
I watched this video: Defined by the Line which tells at the end that ” just caring about a place is not enough.” One must take action. I took it upon myself in my years of graduate school to answer this call here in the Wasatch Mountains. I would urge others to do the same. If you care about something, if you love something then work to protect it.
