Drumheller Valley Ski Hill begins refunding pass holders

    It appears that refunds for those who purchased season tickets for the Drumheller Valley Ski Club are finally trickling out.     On Tuesday afternoon the Ski Drumheller website posted that it had presented payment for the HooDoo Hoppers to the club’s legal council.
    Colin Kloot confirms he is receipt of bank certified cheque in settlement of the HooDoo Hopers’ passes.
    Zrinko Amerl also said on the Ski Drumheller website that  refunds would be delivered to those who requested them. On Wednesday morning, inSide Drumheller received confirmation from one of those owed that she received payment.
    “I will deliver everyone personally myself (or my daughter),” Amerl told inSide Drumheller. “I received about 60 per cent of claims and every last one will be paid by this Friday. Any other ones we will do anything people want to accommodate them.”
    He said he still has an eye on opening the ski hill and said this is the first effort to make things right.
    His next action is legal, including suing the town arising out of the cancellation of the contract between the town and the ski club.
    “Phase two is the launching of a lawsuit against the town for cancellation of the contract between us. We have done that couple of weeks ago as we feel that they had no legal right to do so,” he said. “If the courts do not see it our way we have asked to get awarded compensations, and a list is long of the ones we can ask for…That said, once again we invite the town to honour their side and just let us open the ski hill again and not tie it up for years in the courts.”
    Kloot acting as town solicitor said he has received a copy of a statement of claim filed by Badlands Ski Hill Ltd. He said Badlands Ski Hill Ltd is suing the town for enforcement of the agreement.
    Those wishing to receive their refund are requested to call Adriana Amerl at 403-968-2147, or email Zrinko Amerl at zrinko@skidrumheller.com.
    The refund form is currently available at www.skidrumhller.com for those who have not yet filled it out.
