The transfer of the ski lift parcel is part of that arrangement. The Adirondack Park Agency recently approved the combined activities of FrontStreet, the town of Johnsburg and ORDA covering private and public activities, including the property exchanges in the Ski Bowl.
In a related activity, the APA approved an amendment to the FrontStreet permit on Jan. 29, 2009 covering a realignment of the project Phase One activity.
FrontStreet plans to commence construction activities in the spring of this year, starting with roads, utilities, wastewater treatment facility, townhouses and a lodge for the Country Inn and The Hudson Lodge members.
Johnsburg, ORDA, the Economic Development Corporation for Warren County and FrontStreet have been working collectively for years to connect Gore Mountain with the Ski Bowl. With the addition of the Ski Bowl acreage, Gore Mountain will become the sixth largest ski area in the North East.
The FrontStreet Mountain Development Ski Bowl Village project involves over 430 acres of land located at the site of the historic North Creek Ski Bowl. This project will be a ski-in / ski-out four season sporting club community. It will be developed in phases and when completed will include a 120-room hotel at the base of the mountain, a 30-room country inn, a 60-room lodge, two 40-unit condominium hotels, 131 townhouses, The Hudson Lodge (a private ski lodge), 18 single family homes, restaurants, equestrian center with an indoor riding arena, mountain spa, retail space and a nine-hole par 3 golf course.
