Showdown on High Rustler- Alta Ends Season With a Bash

It's official. The season - at least in Little Cottonwood Canyon- is far from over.

The Mountain Travel Symposium in Beaver Creek, Colo., this week presented the man who has gained notoriety for cutting off his arm to save his life as the keynote speaker for the event. My first thought was how is this guy going to make his experience relevant to tour operators, hoteliers and ski club councils? I mean, sure, after eight years he's now a polished speaker, retelling the intense story of his 127 hours in Southern Utah, but what does this have to do with mountain tourism? If anything wouldn't it keep you out of the mountains? The answer is that it didn't really matter. Read More
