The MDP report stated that Boyne had recently purchased 50 acres of land at Hyak. Anyone know what 50 acres were purchased??? Would that happen to be the area west of the Sundance condo that was cleared or maybe some of the base area land?

Are they talking about the ski area itself?

Both of these properties transferred from Ski Acres, Inc., to CNL this year, and they add up to just shy of 50 acres.

Looks like the lower parking lot and the lower portion of the ski hill. There is still private land at the base area that the area does not own, as has been mentioned on this forum previously, that restricts lodge development.

I heard that the purchase of 50 acres was from Burlington-Northern for some of the land that the area was using in Hidden Valley. If this is true...it is a good sign that they are serious about improving the area. Night skiing would be great to have that back...though it will cut into our bonfire times down at SunCrest

Hidden Valley was a good clue. CNL bought 440 acres in Hidden Valley from Plum Creek on May 9, 2008, for $650,000. Could this be what you've heard about?

From poking around on the map, it looks like Burlington Northern sold all their property in the area to Booth Creek, WA Dept of Recreation, and Plum Creek back in 1989. Or perhaps I missed a parcel somewhere.

(By the way, in the panel on the left, you can click on Assessor's records to get lots of info. You can also click on Layers/Aerial Photos/DOQ-2000, then hit Refresh, to see the property boundaries superimposed on an aerial photo.)

440 acres for $650k sounds like a good deal to me. Good to hear Boyne is putting money twords the future. Think some of that 440 acres was the donated land to the forest service?
