We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

If Utah’s federal delegation gets their way, a massive ski-resort expansion will tiptoe past a full public process and plunk down a major development across pristine Utah wilderness and a vital Salt Lake County watershed, activists say. Critics are rallying now against the plan and Save Our Canyons is holding a fundraiser this Friday to help thwart SkiLink.---

Friday, you can join enviro-activists of Save Our Canyons and the Winter Wildlands Alliance in fighting the development of land* that would connect the two ski resorts together to benefit the Canadian-based Talisker Company.

This weekend, a $100 ticket will help you fight the development and get into the event featuring a cash bar, silent auction, appetizers and desserts, live music, a photographic presentation by Howie Garber and remarks by ski mountaineer Andrew McLean.

Check it out at Caterina, 2155 S. Highland Drive, Friday, Nov. 2, 7 p.m. For ticket info, visit Save Our Canyon’s event page here.
