EDEN, Utah (AP) — A proposed heliport at a Utah ski resort is raising concerns about environmental impact and other issues.
The Standard-Examiner reported Sunday that SMHG Village Development has applied for a conditional use permit to operate a heliport at Powder Mountain.
The facility would house a helicopter to haul skiers, mountain bikers and anglers to remote areas of the resort 59 miles (95 kilometers) north of Salt Lake City.
The heliport would be operated by partner firm Whisper Ridge.
One resident says the proximity of helicopters to the Middle Fork Wildlife Management Area south of Powder Mountain could disturb wildlife.
Another cited risks posed by hauling helicopter fuel on the area’s narrow roads.
The Ogden Valley Planning Commission is scheduled to consider the permit request next week.
