Perhaps the management of Talisker Corp can give The Canyons what this wonderful mountain deserves. In my opinion, the terrain at The Canyons is first rate one of the best, most varied and challenging mountains in North America. Its facilities are at best second rate and, unfortunately, its management has been among the worst the past few years. From funneling virtually all skiers onto an already overcrowded gondola, one which often opens late simply because management is lost, to far too few places to stop, rest, perhaps use a restroom, The Canyons has simply suffered from neglect. The mountain needs some investment, and not just in more $5 million dollar homes.
Talisker has a chance to prove public opinion wrong. Let’s hope their focus is first on fixing and managing a world-class ski area management this majestic mountain deserves rather than simply on more development. As I have written in The Record several times, the Park City area needs a plan for its development. For its future. Talisker, we hope you first fix The Canyons operation and facility while working with the community on development that can serve everyone adequately in the future. If the focus simply becomes on more development, we all lose, and The Canyons will not live up to its incredible potential.
July 4th: Let’s do it again next year
