As Mr. Crab put it, my biggest concern now is development, not whether we are "on the map". If anything, I would hearken back to the days before the Olympics and rampant development. Same good snow, same good terrain, less people. I go to places like Jackson, Telluride and see a totally different mentality there: restrained development. Not in Utah/PC. Too bad, as we are rapidly approaching "killing the goose that laid the golden egg", IMO. Bob, know any *cheap* real estate in JH?
It's also funny to see people now say more/better snow, as if that just happened. It's been that way since the Wasatch slip folded its way above the West Desert plane millions of years ago. It's simple physics; prevailing storms from the West wring out more snow on the 1st big obstacle as they march eastward. The Wasatch happens to be that obstacle. CO just gets the dregs. Now so far this year, CO has had more snow because the storms have traveled a different path, through the SW, bypassing the Wasatch barrier prior to dumping on CO. Good for them. Bad for us
. We'll see though, how the rest of season fares. I bet LCC/BCC still come out on top in terms of end of season snowfall.
