New Ski Resort Proposed For Northern Utah

Developers have proposed putting a new small ski resort in northern Utah near the Idaho border, in a canyon just north of Logan. The resort will also offer summer activities. It would be one of the smallest of Utah's ski resorts.

The Deseret News has this article about the proposal. Below are excerpts.

The proposed site for the Cherry Peak Ski Area is located approximately three miles east of Richmond in Cherry Creek Canyon. The resort would offer 203 acres of recreational skiing and other winter sports activities and would include development of a ski resort base area and mid-mountain facilities, including four ski lifts, a terrain park, a zip line, three water storage reservoirs and one cable tow for the tubing hill.

According to Ski Utah spokeswoman Jessica Kunzer, Wolf Mountain located in Eden is probably the most similar resort, in terms of size and scale, to the Cheery Creek proposal — which targets a different audience than most larger resorts.

The article also mentions that Salt Lake City was recently named the most affordable ski destination in the nation by TripAdvisor.

"Affordability is a key consideration for many families choosing a vacation destination this winter," Kunzer said. "Salt Lake City's close proximity to 11 ski and snowboard resorts gives it a unique ability to provide more low cost lodging and dining options than many other competing winter vacation destinations."
