You stated "That eventually something will have to happen on The Elkhorn property to generate enough revenue to pay for proper restoration of the historic lodge buildings, or they'll end up beyond repair." So please explain to us where the money would come from to build your Tubing Hill. Surely you have that figured out.

As the plan was for the "ski hill",(that would have little to no snow every season, unless the ski hill was going to be on a fake surface also), they were probably going to hit up the town and taxpayers to pay for that too.
Let's be serious, how many people would really pay much of anything to slide down that tiny hill on a fake surface on a hard bottom tube?
It was really just an attempt to keep the old project alive on any level, hopefully this puts that whole lame idea to rest once and for all.
Why don't you get Jirsa to fork up some of his personal money for the sake of historic preservation out of the goodness of his generous heart, oh yeah, no profit in that, never mind.
The problem with cronies, they aren't really there for you when all goes south.
What a farce

Volcano Boy is the only one who can rescue us now.

The person to blame all of this is that balding Nicolson moron who writes for the Trail.

He leveraged this failure into a six figure job with the town.

Meanwhile, the town spent $20K of our money on writing up this crap proposal that no one wanted and that was voted 6th out of 5 proposals submitted to the state because it was so awful.
