Government Owned Ski Area Looking For A New Operator | All Options Are On The Table

A government run ski area in eastern Canada is looking for private money to invest in a public ski hill located in the Long Range Mountains.

The province issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) Friday, looking for private operators interested in developing, managing, or owning the Marble Mountain Ski Resort located in Steady Brook, NL. It seems at all options are on the table.

Gerry Byrne says government will not be selling off its core assets at the hill, but the surrounding land and the villa in the hopes that a private operator can develop the resort as a year-round operation.

The province sees potential growth in backcountry skiing, snow-mobile trails, and even heli-skiing (there is already a local heli-ski operation in place).  The ski area boasts a fantastic ski lodge, 5 lifts (one only 3-years old) and a loyal skier base.
