A proposed heliport at a Utah ski resort is raising concerns about environmental impact and other issues, a report said.
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 Ogden Valley Planning Commission is scheduled to consider the permit request next week.
The heliport would be operated by partner firm Whisper Ridge.
