skiing pow mow is an art. if you ski the wrong spots, you end up pushing flat a mile back to the lift; but if you know the right spots, you are getting deep turns on steep terrain, 3 days after a storm. i feel like a lot of visitors don't give it enough of a chance, but the mountain (probably better described as a series of ridges) really needs to be skied 4 days straight before know how to navigate it without having to push. and if that keeps the general public away, I'm okay with it.
And to OP- I made a thread about this a bit back when I first heard about it. sad news, but I really hope they don't do much to change it. I know there has been opposition to "powder mountain town" for some years now, and it could be possible that the new owners use it more as a retreat location for the entrepreneurship summits they hope. There really isn't much room to build until you go down the canyon to eden or huntsville; unfortunately, if they are determined to build up near the mountain they'll find a way.
