LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

E ver wondered if you have what it takes to scale the vertical face of the world's tallest mountains? Metro Pulse's Zak Weisfeld did, but decided to proceed with a little less ambition. Follow his experience in "Going Up."

Although focused on a local Salt Lake City amusement park, Lagoon, we thought you'd enjoy this story about a possible host to the 2002 Winter Games Nude Roller Coaster Marathon. Under attack and in danger of being closed due to an unfortunate similarity between its name and an unfortunate byproduct of pig farming, read more in "Save Lagoon."

Also in Arts & Leisure, take looks at the Hunger Artist Gallery and the Joseph Gross Gallery, as well as performances of "Ghosts" and "TILT" and discuss the future of dance in the theater.
