    Gatlinburg ski area lost?

    I know this is a northeast focused forum, but just saw on CNN that the Gatlinburg ski area is being reported as lost to the wildfires down in Tennessee. If true, sad.



    Gatlinburg fires appear to destroy 3 resorts

    Damn.

    That's the only ski area in Tennessee as well. That really sucks all around Hope they can put it out soon
    2016/2017 Days - 34 (inc. 10 BC)
    2015/2016 Days - 57 (inc. 2 BC)
    2014/2015 Days - 58
    2013/2014 Days - 47 (inc. 6 BC)

    I'll tell you where. Someplace warm. A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking about a little place called Aspen.

    There was a Facebook post 6 hours ago that said their structure on the mountain was safe and they would be closed today and tomorrow. It doesn't sound at all like it was lost to the fire.

    My hunch is that there may very well be some confusion in the context of "resort" area - meaning much of the region itself vs "resort" which to us means ski resort

    They must have snowmaking guns? Sun Valley saved themselves by turning on the snow making system during a forrest fire.

    Whatever hits the fan will not be distributed evenly.
