This morning, thursday, there was a detailed article about the Eskimo Ski Club closing, on the front page. The club was forced out of its small W.P. frontside club office/gear stash/child comfort space, and in the end didn't feel it could continue with lesser alternatives offered, according to the article, and Anne Buckley.
I called someone at Winter Park, got a nice fellow involved in the negotiations, who tried to explain Winter Park's point of view. He pretty much said what appears in the Post article below, including, if I'm not mistaken, that the annual value of that space to Winter Park was about $50,000 (per season? or per month?), whereas the club was paying $3,000, I believe (per season?), for the same.
(I hope the article is accessible.)
