If the lift lines are getting too long for you – and you have an extra $4 million around – then Cimarron Mountain Club is just the ticket. There’s one hitch, though: Only 12 people get to buy into the resort.
Trying to get ahead of the popularity of videoing from remote-controlled drones, many Western resorts have banned their use – citing safety issues and both FAA and U.S. Forest Service concerns.
The irony isn’t lost on locals. Four comparatively miserable winters and yet Utah ski resorts spent millions on “improvements” this summer, raising the cost of lift tickets and season passes yet again, all in the hopes of attracting more visitors.
