Ski Hill to be sold

Members of the Drumheller Ski Club have voted to sell the hill to a private interest.

Vote held at Civic Centre

Members of the Drumheller Ski Club have voted to sell the hill to a private interest.

In a vote held Thursday, May 28, members of the 16 year old hill that shares lodge facilities with the Passion Play, agreed to sell the area to interests controlled by Mr. Zrinko Amerl, the area’s 2009 manager.

Considerable debate preceded the vote and was obviously an emotional issue for most of the crowd.

Board president Zeke Wolf, told the meeting the present board does not want to run the ski hill. He said the proposal from Mr. Amerl will allow the club to pay outstanding debts of over $200,000.

The major creditors are ATB Financial and the Town of Drumheller.

Mr. Amerl provided the meeting with a media presentation outlining the major concerns facing the hill today, including poor equipment and failing infrastructure.

The vote count was 25 - 14 in favour of selling the hill.
