According to the Vermont Standard, current Ascutney Mountain Resort owner MFW Associates is planning to build 22 luxury homes on the property.
The proposed real estate development is reportedly not on the 469 acres of land that the Town of West Windsor and local conservation groups are attempting to purchase, but rather on a separate 100 acre tract.
Also according to the Vermont Standard, West Windsor Select Board Chair Glenn Seward has continued talks to leave the door open for ski operations. As reported on NewEnglandSkiIndustry.com on September 19, the Sunrise Double chairlift could be acquired as part of the sale. Seward is suggesting a co-op could be formed to operate a scaled down version of the ski area in the future.
The proposal, which will be discussed at informational hearings on October 1 and October 13 at 6:30 and voted on at an October 14 special town meeting at 6:30, is for Trust for Public Lands to purchase an option on the land from MFW Associates.
