DENVER — Developers proposing a huge ski village at the base of a remote ski area in southwest Colorado have suffered another court setback.
The Colorado Court of Appeals upheld a
lower court ruling that voided Mineral County’s approval of the project
at the Wolf Creek resort.
Two environmental groups and the
operators of the ski area had accused the county of being a rubber
stamp for Texas billionaire developer Red McCombs.
ruled that when Mineral County approved the project, it didn’t follow a
state law requiring year-round access for wheeled vehicles.
