Snowbird Expanding in 2 Years
Snowbird just got approval to expand into Mary Ellen Gulch, at least two lifts, a zip-line, and possibly a gondola will be added to access roughly 500 acres of new terrain. Construction won't begin for another 2 years.
It seems there is a bunch of opposition from people thinking this expansion will "destroy" American Fork Canyon. Issues like water quality, land access, and "shady deals" are also of concern.
I, for one, am all for the expansion, I would love some new killer terrain. I'm also an avid hiker/camper, and I don't see this expansion impacting those summer-time activities from the way things are now. Thoughts?
my thoughts are that snowbird was already one of if not the best resort in the US. It's really unreal they'll have even more terrain and I'm super stoked to keep visiting once a year and skiing there
The expansion looks awesome. People are mad about it now, but in two years the only people who will care about its existence are the skiers and riders who are loving the terrain.
Yess I'm glad they approved this it will open up some wicked new areas, stoked for this
The only part that could be a problem is that they are sort of song what vail did at park city they are going to advertise the heck out of it but not do anything parking, canyon traffic, etc...hopefully it works out because there would be some great zones to explore, but hope they address those issues
Fuck hippies, build stuff.
