That's what I thought when I saw the headline. How cool would that have been. I could have worn my old red white and blue hat!

Bring back the "America's Opening" of the World Cup Ski Racing.

We lost that and many other large events under Dana Williams watch.

That is such a stupid comment. PCMR decided not to host America's Opening anymore because it was too expensive, took too many resources away from opening the resort to the general public, and had already served the purpose of getting the Olympics to Utah and Park City (which was Craig Badami's intent in getting it here in the first place). The Mayor has nothing to do with what events are or are not here. Name three other of your "many large events" that are no longer here.

True. The _real_ America's Cup was gone long before Dana's regime. It was a result of *skiers* and real industry leaders. Not the mommy cow "resort" people there now that happen to have sliding on snow at their property. Not many real ski areas left I'm afraid, but at least we have two of them close by.
