We will overview some of the highlights below:
- Powder town (aka Powderville) is dead. The petition to incorporate and subsequent lawsuits have been dropped.
- They have purchased several parcels during the Wolf Creek bankruptcy sale, of which a 1500 acre will remain open space.
- The previous owners had mentioned 10,000, 5,000 and 3,000 homes with golf courses and 19 lifts. Summit feels those numbers are excessive.
- Phase one will consist of 500 smaller (4,000 sq. ft.) single family homes south of the Hidden Lake parking lot.
- They plan to preserve the existing terrain and the number of lifts will remain roughly status quo.
- They own the Wolf Barn and 80 surrounding acres. They plan to use it for resort base parking during the ski season, then reseed and use as a public park in the off season. Possibly soccer fields.
- They hope to revive the Balloon Festival.
- After phase one, they hope to redone much of the 10,000 acres as TR-1 - Resort Zone.
- Last year, there were 139,000 skier days at Powder Mountain.
