"The fact of the matter is this project is much more than a ski hill," he said. "There's tremendous emotion surrounding Big Tupper. This resort has several components to it that go well beyond the ski resort. There will be more sales realized from the connection with the town-owned golf course than from the ski slope. Then you have to factor in the marina, the equestrian center, and some of the other elements of the project, it is much, much more than the Big Tupper Ski Area - that's just one small component of the overall resort amenities."
Hearings on the massive resort development continue this month and are expected to wrap up by July.
