The Alberta meadow at the bottom of the Alberta lift at Wolf Creek Ski area Monday, September 12, 2005, is meadow and its fragile wetlands stands in the way of 222,000 square feet of development of commercial space, and numerous roads and condos of the proposed Village at Wolf Creek. The Pitcher family, owners of Wolf Creek Ski Area in Colorado, is fighting an expansion effort by billionare B.J. Red McCombs at the base of the resort. If built, the Village at Wolf Creek will have 2,100 housing units and 222,00 square feet of commercial space built on 288 acres, 115 that are currently skiable terrain and large part in wetlands in the Alberta meadows. Davey Pitcher, CEO and President of the resort says, "It is the families assessment that the McCombs group is trying to steal our ski area. With 465 inches of snowfall, there's a lot of issues. We are not opposed to development as long as it is proven to be reasonable and practical." (DENNIS SCHROEDER/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS)
