When was this monstrocity installed. I hope it is historic, because something like this is just deplorable. Kind of like putting that convention center on Hidden Peak, bu not quite as bad.

I think this was installed as recently as 2005 so it's not historic. They actually want to build a tram up Mount Ogden in the future. The Sierra Club is fighting against this. I hope that they win. The whole idea makes me sad.

How sad. I wonder who did this? If they did it in Canyonlands NP, they would be in prison right now.

It was designed by Jeff Lowe and was built on Chris Petersen's land. He owns the property near Waterfall Canyon and approved of the Via Ferrata.

Never mind then. If it was on private land, it would be fine.

Just read in the Ogden Standard that a survey was done, asking Ogden residents how much they would contribute toward the tram. Results were a whopping $7.00 per resident! There are about 60,000 residents, and the tram cost was 20 million. Thats a little short! Ain't gonna happen anytime soon. Cool!
