Vt. ski slope reopening as private resort
December 5, 2011 - Jessica Collier
I heard this story the other day on Vermont Public Radio.
It's about a ski slope in the Dover/Wilmington, Vt. area that was closed for a while and is being reopened as a private ski slope, the third time it's been attempted.
It's being haled as a positive step for economic development in that region.
I wonder what would have happened if Foxman had tried to do this kind of thing with Big Tupper from the beginning. I know there were many fears about it, and they were at least somewhat allayed when developers agreed to keep the ski area open to the public for the next 50 years as long as it is open and operating.
But that's one of the big questions APA commissioners said they want to discuss at the meeting in November. Chairwoman Lani Ulrich said she wants to revisit the 50 year limit. Should be interesting.
Oh, btw, did you go to the Snowball? What did you think? Did you like Jim LaValley's sign?
