Mt. Crescent, a popular ski area located just south of Omaha near Council Bluffs in western Iowa, has been sold to Pottawattamie County, which will continue to operate the ski area. The county plans to explore further recreational development of the area hoping to make it into a year-round destination, according to a report from KMTV3.
No less than nine Heartland ski areas are celebrating significant milestones this year. All have been in business at least 60 years and one started 85 years ago, according to the National Ski Areas Association.
