Is this the same project that was slated for Acworth, Dawsonville, Lilburn and a host of other cities in the area? The developer talks a lot then disappears..........

This makes about as much sense as moving the London Bridge to a desert in America. Some things just have no reason to be in some places and a freking ski resort has no business on top of a freaking mountain in Bartow County Georgia.

Why not Bartow County? There's plenty of room. It's close to the Interstate. It's not congested like Kennesaw, Marietta, Roswell, etc. This would provide lots of jobs for high school and college students and be a great gateway for north metro Atlanta. Do it!

Question : What does a do do bird and an indoor ski resort in Bartow County have in common?

Answer : They are both terrible ideas and neither of them are ever going to fly.

They said the thong was a terrible idea, too. But they became popular and changed my eating habits.

This resort is probably the best idea GA has ever come up with. I know hundreds of people from Kennesaw alone that drive to North Carolina EACH WEEKEND from November to March to ski at Cataloochee. Not only would this create hundreds of much needed jobs, but it would pay for itself within a few years. The is not one thing wrong that can be said about this idea.

Why aren't all my fellow enviormentalist lobbying against this like they are lobbying against the 411 connector? Is it because the Rollins family doesn't have a stake in this wildnerness property? My wilderness friends Bingo beaver and Bambi the deer are pissed off as well.

I happen to live 5 minutes away from the proposed building site, and I think that it is a terrible idea. Bartow county is a very rural area, which I love! I can come home from the congestion of Atlanta and see deer in my backyard! Bartow County cannot support something like this. Emerson has a dollar general, two gas stations, and Doug's Place and that's it! I think that the developers will get a reality check if they continue with their project.
