WBA launched THE UPTRACK in 2021 as a digital roundtable discussion about transportation solutions for Little Cottonwood Canyon with hopes to answer all questions associated with the UDOT EIS proposals.

Three years later, we are still deeply involved in discussions around transportation in the Central Wasatch. Learn about the history of studying transportation solutions, WBA’s Backcountry Shuttle program, and how we, as a community, can help prevent a gondola in Little Cottonwood Canyon.
