Utah Ski Link Gets Criticized — By the Hook and Bullet CrowdBy Michael Frank on December 14th, 2012
The move to wed The Canyons and Solitude via a lift amounts to the Forest Service ceding only 30 acres of public land and putting it into private hands. Now a voice you wouldn’t expect, Outdoor Life, is calling it out as an unwise move, saying that Utah Congressman Rob Bishop is in the wrong with his proposal and that it will create a domino effect of public land going private. “SkiLink may seem like a small thing, but it’s part of a widening pattern of attempts to undermine one of America’s greatest treasures: our public lands…The effect of the sale of public lands will certainly curtail the number of folks who get to hunt, as with the less available land, you will have less opportunity to hunt or fish.
