Brief: The Canyons tears down Smokies

Thursday afternoon The Canyons Resort announced it would begin the demolition of Smokies and the Old Day Lodge at 7:30 a.m. Friday, June 25. The area is a fenced construction zone with no admittance for guides or guests, said a press release. Effective immediately, there is no vehicle access to the Forum via the Smokies road. Mountain bike and hiking traffic will be routed through the Sundial arch. They will then turn right up High Mountain Road, where they will ride/walk past the last Vintage on the Strand unit. Trail signs direct people up Holly’s at the junction of the High Mountain Road and the work road (above the orange fencing), the release said.
