Amid the bad news, there is some good news for the Los Alamos Ski Club.
The ski club membership voted in early February to explore a possible land and asset transfer to Los Alamos County or another interested party.
And while exploration efforts with the county about the possible transfer are going well, LASC has also received a potential offer from a group affiliated with Sipapu, another popular ski resort in Northern New Mexico, that would also be interested in managing the area.
Ski club president Philip Rae said one of the biggest worries of the club’s membership-at-large is that off-season activities, such as mountain biking and hiking, would be curtailed. However, there seems to be consensus from both the Sipapu group and the county that spring and summer events are vital for the community.
While it’s hardly unanimous among club members that a move to transfer operations is a good thing, Rae said it’s hard to envision a scenario where it wouldn’t be necessary for LASC to take these steps.
“Part of it is that we can’t raise enough capital that we can see to turn this situation around,” he said. “It would be kind of a band-aid and wouldn’t really be helping the situation.”
