No need for second tubing hill in Fraser

We think that it’s great that Cornerstone Holdings/Byers Peak Properties, LLC has offered to provide a hill for a Nordic Jumping Program, right next to the old Tubing Hill, to replace the lost Nordic Jumping Hill and program.

That original Nordic Jump was previously located at the Winter Park Ski Area, but sadly, after about 65 years, Intrawest got rid of it three years ago.

This new Jumping Hill location, offered by Cornerstone Holdings/Byers Peak Properties, would be a great location for the Community and for all local Nordic Jumpers, and would very nicely complement the old original, unique, existing Tubing Hill, right in Fraser, that has been here for about 36 years.

Cornerstone Holdings/Byers Peak Properties, LLC should want to be good neighbors, but we were very disappointed to hear that Cornerstone Holdings/Byers Peak Properties also wants to put in their own new tubing hill, right next door to the original one.

Does anyone really think that two separately owned tubing hills, right next to each other, could both monetarily survive?

Instead of making a new tubing hill to compete with the original old Tubing Hill, which probably would put the original/old Tubing Hill right out of business, Cornerstone Holdings/Byers Peak Properties, LLC should just make their hill a Nordic Jumping Hill, and forget about creating a new tubing hill.

We earnestly hope that Cornerstone Holdings/Byers Peak Properties, LLC will want to complement our existing community and businesses, instead of competing with them.
