KENNECOTT -- Two years ago Kennecott talked about building ski trails in the Oquirrh mountains, but not much has been said about it publicly since then. Still, Kennecott land president Don Whyte is hopeful.

"It would be way too early to make a go or no go decision because we just don't have enough information yet. But I'm enthused that the initial studies show it's something we should spend more effort in looking at," he said.

Whyte says they've studied snow data for three years and it's promising. But the real estate market is bad right now, and they have to still study what to do about the copper mine.
