Ski area owner asks for support

Laramie, Wy – The owner of the Snowy Range Ski Area outside Laramie is asking people to support the business during hard times.
Rick Colling spoke to about 70 people Tuesday during a public
hearing on the future of the Snowy Range Ski Area. The ski area has
had financial difficulty since a fire destroyed the main lodge in
2003.
A bigger lodge was built, but business has been down, and Rick
and Terri Colling report having $4.5 million in debt. The Collings
have been trying for a year to find a buyer for the ski area.
The ski area is opening for the winter season under the
oversight of First National Bank.
