four hour field trip/hike through Alberta Park,
site of the proposed VWC development.
Led by District Ranger Tom Malecek the tour was intended
to inform the interested public about the project.
Below is a report I filed with the Four Corners Free Press on the event.
It appears Billy Joe “Red” McCombs’ longtime dream of constructing a luxury resort town in the middle of Alberta Park (elevation: 10,300 feet), nestled against the Continental Divide on Wolf Creek Pass Colorado and coincidentally home to some forty feet of annual snowfall, burns hot as ever.
After having over a decade's worth of development preparations thwarted McCombs dumped Bob Honts, his developer, regrouped his Leavell-McCombs Joint Venture and has hired a new developer, Clint Jones, to spearhead a new plan of attack.
