Cody, Wy – The Sleeping Giant ski area, which has been closed for three winters, could reopen by the winter of 2008-09.
The ski area is about 45 miles west of Cody.
Co-owner Jim Nielson of Cody said he and the other owners are planning to make improvements and reopen the ski area.
Nielson said the goal is to provide a family-style ski hill that was once a mainstay of local winter sports.
He says it will not compete with other regional ski areas such as Red Lodge or Jackson Hole.
