“WINTER PARK — Tourists and ski enthusiasts will barely recognize Winter Park Resort come this winter thanks to several large-scale improvement projects across the resort.
The projects, which constitute the single biggest improvement the resort has done in its history, include a new 10-person ski gondola, an updated snowmaking system and several acres of logging. All those projects are presently on schedule to open for the 2018-2019 winter season.
According to Steve Hurlbert, director of public relations for the resort, the resort received $28.2 million for the project from its parent company, Alterra, which is more than any other Alterra-owned resort has received for improvements this year.” – Sky-Hi News
