Default More Lies from Snowbasin

As previously reported, Snowbasin Ski Area has, at times, been less
than truthful regarding their published vertical drop:




Now they appear to be at it again, however, this time it's not about
vertical drop, but how long it takes to drive from Salt Lake City
International Airport to Snowbasin.

On the Snowbasin Web Page it says:

"...and just 45 minutes north of Salt Lake City's international
airport." :


Words of advise to anyone planning on driving to Snowbasin from the
SLC airport.

My experience is that one cannot drive from the airport to Snowbasin
in 45 minutes unless you want to seriously break the law.

It takes at least 35 minutes to arrive at the intersection of US-89
and I-84 (Weber Canyon), and then another 20 minutes to get up to the
ski area. A more realistic figure is 55 to 60 minutes drive time from
SLC Airport (dry roads, no traffic).

Yea, I know, what's 15 minutes? Not much, however, it's just another
example of disinformation (intentional or not) published by Snowbasin,
a Sun Valley Resort owned by Earl Holding.
