    I am skeptical as well - my point was simply that the "if you build it they will come" idea has worked in the past, albeit no circumstances are the same.

    It's all over now. Not much of a surprise I guess with all the postponements to beginning the rebirth.

    Can't say I'm surprised either although I was hoping beyond hope that this could be built. It would've been cool.

    Maybe Otten will take one last shot over at Saddleback. I'd much rather see SB come back to life than what was planned at the Balsams

    I saw reference to the sale in a local newspaper article last week, but it was behind a paywall. Suprisingly I did not find mention of it until now. Guess it is over.

    I think we will probably never see LBO re-emerge as a player in the ski scene given what happened with ASC. Lots of good ideas but no money and nobody willing to bankroll him.

    It never made sense. If I recall it’s south of Sugarloaf, but like the ‘loaf, too far off the beaten track. I get that if you build a destination resort people will come. But there was never a viable plan for that: when it’s huge great... but how do grow from a few lifts to what was envisioned.
