Plan for gated ski community near Vail
Plans were submitted last week for the Ginn Co., a Florida-based company known for building posh golf resorts, to build a private ski area and golf course community south of Minturn, near Vail.
According to the AP, the resort will include 4,300 acres and 1,700 housing units.
No word on how many skiable acres it will have, but anyone who wants to know what a members-only ski area is like can look at Montana's Yellowstone Club, 13,400-acre resort with the world's only private ski mountain and a golf course. According to AP, lots at the club sell for a minimum $1 million an acre and prospective members must prove they're worth at least $3 million.
So... I don't think I'll ever be skiing at the Yellowstone Club, or Battle Mountain, for that matter, if it gets built.
