So in other words I'm calling bullshit.
Then again none of us had facial hair.
This makes as much sense as a white saying I've never seen blacks descriminated against!
I have gone to Utah many times over 37 years and experienced it first hand many times. I didn't understand it was caused by the church till recently.
35 years ago I went skiing in SLC and asked the pretty waitress where to go to have fun at night. She replied, "If you boys wanna have fun skiing, go to Colorado." Everyone in the restaurant laughed but me, I thought she was nuts.
I love skiing Alta and have 70+ days there. Also many days at Snow Basin, Snowbird, Solitude and some at Park, Brighton, Deer Valley (food's incredible), The Canyons and Brianhead.
Even if you have a mustashe you will feel the descrimination.
Have also mountain biked many trails there. Porcupine Rim, Gooseberry Mesa and Zen Trail are amazing, Slickrock will make you work. The countryside and terrain are great, it's the church's attitude that's the problem.
