Save Bonanza Flats

By Amy Brunvand

Bonanza Flats is for sale, and it could go to developers or to open space. The 1,400 acre property is located on Guardsman’s Pass between Deer Valley, Park City and Brighton. Park City has agreed to tax themselves $25 million to purchase the property, but it will cost $38 million to outbid the developers.

A coalition of conservation and recreation groups is trying to raise the additional $13 million, including Utah Open Lands, Wasatch Backcountry Alliance, Friends of Alta, Summit Land Conservancy, Save Our Canyons, Mountain Trails Foundation, Sierra Club and Winter Wildlands Alliance.
