SALT LAKE CITY -- Ski bum or lawyer?
Steve Young still laughs hearing his father recall those glory days at Alta Ski Patrol in Utah's Little Cottonwood Canyon.
"To this day, he's not sure he made the right decision," the Hall of Fame quarterback joked recently.
It's those fond memories that have son determined to find a way to build his dad that dream cabin in a remote forested area within the tiny ski resort southeast of Salt Lake City.
He just has one problem: Young owns the land but not the water rights.
Salt Lake City owns water rights in the canyon dating back to a court ruling more than 120 years.
And the city isn't about to begin selling its precious resource or permits to build housing in its watershed.
