    Just because as the poster said the selection in Sandy may not be as good as folks hope.

    It is not a bad drive from SLC to Jackson. The only issue in winter can be the weather.

    Grand Targhee is well worth the trip. Great snow and no crowds at all. Very laid back.

    Depends upon what kind of experience you want. If you are interested in saving some coin, don't care about nightlife or fancy restaurants, then sure, staying in Sandy or Cottonwood Heights is a good...

    That said, I used to snowshoe and XC ski a lot more until I grew up and had to pay full freight for a pass. Now I often try to use it as much as I can.

    Read the op-ed. His concern is the lack of oversight and the fact that the local county has no say as to land use and their local regs. Also see that the MIDA board are not accountable to anyone.

    An Op Ed piece that gives some historical context and also shows just how little those serving in the armed services are getting. Not to mention the fact that there is virtually no oversight.

    Right. They may have access to a spot or two, but most of Jordanelle is state land.
