I think it is a great idea. It was been done many times in Europe and ski great to ski... Imagine skiing all 7 resorts in the Wasatch in one day and been able to ski back to where you started. Let's hurry up and get out of the way and make this a reality.

Canyons is my favorite resort because of the lift set up. It takes longer to traverse it, but is also holds its pow the best. It's maybe not the best place to ski for an hour or 2, but when you're talking about spending an entire day, or better yet an entire season, the design is genius. My record time driving from parleys summit to solitude is 45 minutes... it's definitely over an hour from park city proper, even more in snow.
Talisker wants to pay for the skilink lift. Sounds great to me. For everybody who doesn't want ski resorts to expand- go spend some time at mount baker in washington. Not improving or expanding in 25 years does not make a sustainable solution; it creates a time warp.
Improving and expanding is what they have been doing, under various owners and managers, for 15 years on...no timewarp here. Square Top has claimed many lives, because it does not hold snow well... ski resorts have no "right" to expand into other owners property...the core Wasatch is a tight and crowded range.

WOW, and what will you do for an encore? This isn't the European alps. I doubt that you or anyone have the energy to ski 7 resorts in one day - besides, that's not the point, and it is simply a dumb idea. the consequences are uneraseable.
Talisker is a cheater.

There are two fundamental flaws with this project. One the way Talisker is going about it.
The demecratic process played out years ago with alot of public input and the forest sevice plan said no lift seved expansion on public land. A Canadian real estate comany is trying to circumvent that asserting their proft motive trumps the public good.Two the fastest growing segment by far in the ski industry is backcounry touring, resort numbers are flat to decleing.
Why should we transfer valuable public land to a Canadian real estate company that is turning out to be a poor corparate neightbor? Spend your moeny else where join us at boycott the canyons on face book.
Hey Dirk: there are two fundamental flaws with your post - one, your elementary school-level spelling, and two, the way you contradict your own agenda. You want people to boycott the canyons over 30 acres of forest service land they are proposing to purchase and instead go to other resorts? What's your real beef? at least the Canyons is a ski resort on private land unlike the resorts in Big and Little Cottonwood where private companies have overdeveloped on federal land. Talk about poor corporate neighbors who create havoc on public land...

Go back to Canada and mess things up there. You have no idea how to run a resort. You raised prices for the people who can least afford it because you think you can compete with Deer Valley in the high end resort market. No way, Talisker. Not until you figure out how to treat the locals and the long-term customers properly.

Talisker is a sinking ship. The turnover with the senior level management at the resort says it all. The CFO just left, another VP of finance just left, the longest-tenured employee at Talisker just left and at least 3 CEOs have left in the past 3 or 4 years. Once all the ASC people are gone, there will be no one left who has a clue about how to run a ski resort. Even Goar has become a puppet of the big and powerful Talisker Oz. what the hell, Goar? You used to be a ski resort guy. What happened?

Mike Goar is not the problem. He is a true Utah ski resort veteran and one of the greatest guys I have ever worked for. He knows what he's doing and if he had it his way, I'm sure Canyons would be doing some things differently - but not with regard to Ski Link. I'm pretty certain he likes the idea, as do all the other resort Presidents in the Wasatch. For the resorts, it's a great idea.

Has anyone asked Mike why this route makes more sense than a route over gaurdsman through already developed land? Interconnect is not the issue. Talisker is. They are a devleoper first. They can not be trusted. I will trust the established long term community players at PCMR or Deer Valley before laying in bed with the current operator at wolf mountain. Shame on him for throwing years of public good will out the window for a fat pay day!They paid him because they know their credibility is zero in this community.

Take a look at the heavy inventory of residential lots at Tuhaye GC available for sale on the Park City multilist. One is listed at $89,900 (#9990530) another is listed at $99,000 (#9989263).
