18,000 acres of skiing, 100 lifts, one lift pass. Sound good? Thats Ski Utahs plan for the future of northern Utah. While the outcome is not yet certain, resort partners are working together to offer visitors truly unrestrained access to the mighty Wasatch mountains.Tourism amounts to $7 billion in revenue a year for Utah, 20% of which comes from skiing. The One Wasatch concept would connect seven ski areas (Deer Valley, Park City Mountain Resort, Canyons Resort, Solitude, Brighton, Alta, and Snowbird) in three different drainages (Park City, Big Cottonwood Canyon, Little Cottonwood Canyon). Were the concept to be fully realized, Utah would be the only place in North America to offer a similar experience. One Wasatch would allow Utah and seven of its leading, unique resorts to offer more options to visitors.Further, having taken into consideration various concerns voiced by local backcountry skiers and ecologists, the new concept has been designed to protect popular backcountry terrain, watershed areas, and minimize ecological footprint. In a meeting with Berkshire Hathaway Utah Properties this morning, Nathan Rafferty, President and CEO of Ski Utah, shared, Connecting seven of Utahs finest ski resorts while preserving both our water quality and a pristine backcountry experience is not an impossible task. With thoughtful planning and sincere cooperation, One Wasatch would add significantly to what is already one of the greatest ski destinations in the world."Ski Utah and its champions will continue to work closely with Mountain Accord to ensure that the public is made aware of any developments pertaining to the concept and that our pristine environment is kept that way.The concept would be funded entirely by private parties, costing the general public nothing. Statistical studies support the belief that the concept would build upon the already robust Utah ski industry, which amounts to 4.2 million visits a year and 18,000 jobs.We look forward to the future of Utah's ski industry. It's thrilling to watch the constant evolution of our Wasatch playground. ... more»

We are ridiculous design nerds. As big proponents of bringing cutting-edge architecture and design to Utah, we make sure we are on top of all the best trends from corrugated metal, to Scandanvian minimalism, to geometric patterns. Part of Championing Contemporary in our marketplace means informing current residents of what we think are some cool design ideas being put forward globally and locally. Here are some looks we are geeking-out over currently: Dining areas that double as contemporary art galleries. Food and art just go together. Dining is already a communal activity and art facilitates meaningful discussion. We love the look of this fabulous French restaurant in Hong Kong. The combination of eclectic modern pieces with ancien regime parquet floors and exposed brass ventilation pipes creates a space of vibrancy--one that is both intimate and energetic. Looking for some statement art pieces at low cost to bring this concept to your calorie-consumption zone? Check-out the great online gallery by Austin Texas shop, Poster Cabaret. Wallpaper. Wallpaper is having a moment. A big one. And, we could not be more thrilled. We are loving the bold wallpaper illustrations of Columbian artist, Catalina Estrada and innovative floral prints used by Wall&Deco. Wallpaper functions as large scale art and offers a unique way to give a room a mood. This generations wallpaper champions have re-invented the industry, incorporating large scale prints, custom illustrations, tactile textures, and brave colors. Room dividers. Rather than putting in permanent walls, interior decorators have reintroduced the room divider. Over-segmenting homes and living spaces limits movement and light flow. A divider allows you to define an areas functions without shrinking your living space. Clever dividers also double as additional storage and art pieces. Win-win. Frame stacking. Forget everything you were told about hanging art. The new way to hang art is however you want to. Period. New options to showcase art include not hanging it (simply lean frames against a wall), layer frames, hang lots of pictures together in a group with varying amounts of space between them. Do what you want! Its not chaos; it&... more»
