Ski area would start small

I mentioned in a story in today's Gazette that the proposed Pikes Peak ski area could eventually include 300 condos, a hotel, restaurants and five lifts. Developer John Ball called to say this was a long-term "blue sky" estimate meant for investors, and the hill would start much smaller, with just 27 small condos and a single lift. That will probably strike most locals as more realistic.
