Tourism is an important element in the Sandy community as it provides numerous business opportunities, additional resources for managing open space in our nearby national forests and wilderness areas and provides tax revenues for the city to operate its budget smoothly.

Chris recognized an important missing element in our municipal role and became an advocate for our tourism based industries. He founded a renewed tourism committee which is comprised of Alta and Snowbird Resorts, hotel owners and other related business to help promote tourism, especially in Sandy. The committee, now in its seventh year, has a highly successful track record of partnering with businesses, the State of Utah and other entities that derive benefits from the committee’s actions.
