Paragliding Point of the Mountain, Utah; will it get bulldozed tomorrow?

I've just moved to Utah, and a big part of the allure of living here is the great weather and the quality of the paragliding locations around the area.   Just a few miles down the road from me is the site I learned on, love, and love to come back to for easy soaring and kiting practice.

The Point of the Mountain, with both morning and evening paragliding soaring sites, is one of the best locations to learn in the world.    But it's under threat from a mining company, which in the past few weeks has been bulldozing away at the very ridgeline that we are soaring on.   It's not tomorrow's problem, it's today's.    Read more about it here;


Help us tell the world that we want to keep this beautiful natural landscape not just for the paragliders and hangliders, but for the future.  The Point of the Mountain is a a icon in the Salt Lake Valley and deserves to survive beyond the need for a few loads of cheap gravel.  Please help by signing this petition https://www.change.org/petitions/salt-lake-county-government-save-steep-mountain

Thanks, and hope to see you out on the mountain!
