After declaring bankruptcy over the course of the past winter, Echo Mountain Resort‘s future was precarious to say the least but thanks to Burwell Enterprises, the resort will be operating this upcoming ski season.
A subsidiary of Burwell, Ski Echo LLC will oversee operations and provide what they are referring to as, “an unprecedented personal experience.” In order to provide that experience, resort officials will focus on improving snowmaking, revamping the lodge’s interior, as well as providing some new on-mountain food and beverage options.
“We’ve received an outpouring of support and enthusiasm from local communities, Clear Creek County and a number of people across the ski and snowboard industry.” – Fred Klaas, General Manager @EchoMountain
Being just 40 minutes away from Denver, Echo’s potential seems massive but the ski area has been unable to sufficiently capture the local crowd in years past. So far, pass prices (both season and day) have yet to be determined.
