Utah’s Silicon Slopes is showing signs it may take the reigns from its tech-giant predecessor.

Salt Lake City was just named by Forbes Magazine as the top “2017 tech mecca” looking to overthrow Silicon Valley.

Salt Lake’s stable workforce, top-ranking tech universities, low cost of living, attractive climate, and family-friendly atmosphere were named as reason why companies are moving to the Beehive State.

This may not come as a surprise for those in the know. Last year, Utah topped CNBC’s list for “Top States for Business.”

And in 2015, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce ranked Utah number one in innovation and entrepreneurship, number two in high-tech performance and number 3 in economic performance in a study of all 50 states.

Small changes can make big impacts – especially when it comes to our air quality.

Salt Lake City’s non-profit bike share program, GREENbike, is helping lead the way in this charge.

For the first time, in its five-year history, GREENbike did not close for the winter.

Typically the non-profit’s season runs April through December, but the organizations management said they decided to stay open year around to provide more transportation options during the valley’s winter inversion – a time when our cars are the biggest contributor to our poor air quality.

Though their season has increased by three months, GREENbike promises not to increase annual pass prices – which range from 35 to 75 dollars a year.
