The headache of Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons is one of the most talked about issues in all of skiing and snowboarding.
Those resorts obviously have the best snow, but there’s still a handful of independently-owned ski resorts across the state of Utah where you can simply focus on what’s most important- skiing.
Watch as YouTube channel The Journal of Lost Time explores Nordic Valley, the first stop on his quest to visit the remaining independently-owned ski resorts left in the Beehive State.
The Journal of Lost Time: “Skiing is one of the most basic human traditions; slide down a snowy hill with some friends and enjoy time outside in the winter.
So how did we stray so far from our roots, with massive conglomerate resorts that cost an arm and a leg to enjoy, and consume hours of our lives waiting in line?
Join Nate Luebbe as he explores the last few remaining independent ski resorts in Utah to discover what skiing used to be, and still is, if you know where to look.”
