Bid Made to Buy Northern Wyoming Ski Area

POWELL, Wyo. (AP) - Three Powell residents have signed an agreement to purchase the Antelope Butte Ski Area and are seeking approval from the U.S. Forest Service.

Gib Condie, and Scott and Laura Shoopman recently signed an agreement to purchase the improvements of the ski area in the Big Horn Mountains east of Greybull near Granite Pass. The agreement is nonbinding, and the parties can back out.

Condie and the Shoopmans are submitting an application to the Forest Service for a special use permit, along with a business plan and documents demonstrating that they will be able to operate the ski area.

Condie said his biggest concern is whether the Forest Service will allow more summer use of the ski area, which has been closed since 2004.
