Well, I'll tell you where I stand (even if you were not asking me):
I am all for economic development WHERE IT MAKES SENSE. In this case, the Gondi project seems OK, as long as there is no ski run development on the front side of Mt. Ogden (as is proposed by Holding's son-in-law). Connecting Odgen directly with Snowbasin would be a boon to the area, with a small impact on the surrounding eco system. Drawing more skiers to existing resorts is the best scenario for managing the back country areas since you can concentrate them in the existing developments, even if they grow slightly side-to-side over the years.
