Once again, another monumental Canyons screw up. Just goes to show you that bad decisions can be made across all the owners of that place.
If they had spent just a wee bit of time doing just some basic snow science, they would find out that Iron Mountain does not attract and hold a lot of snow. It is too far away form the Wasatch Crest, and too low in elevation.
Why is it that The Canyons continues to just royally screw up Western Monitor, White Pine, Red Pine and the rest of that area? It's not that hard. The terrain is great, the snow is deep (when you know where to look). It's just not that hard. But yet I just get so disappointed and disheartened every time I ski there.
Oh Well, at least they don't have development rights to Mill Creek...
