When I moved here in 1972 is was something in its day. Years after that it was a great place to have dinner. I agree the mild winters caused the decline. Pretty soon after being pretty much abandoned people started coming out of the hills and cooking meth on the property and in the buildings. It was a private resort and law enforcement could not monitor the area like they would a public place. The last guy that owned it really tried to bring it back. It is just too far to travel to play golf when you have 10 other courses that are much closer. It is beautiful up there. I am surprised that some company hasn't purchased it for a company retreat for their executives.
