Ski Hill to be sold

    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.
