Aspen Skiing Co. puts resort development on hold

ASPEN - The redevelopment of the base of the Buttermilk ski resort has been put on hold while the Aspen Skiing Co. negotiates with the state Department of Transportation to buy a piece of land to complete the plan.

The ski company submitted its master plan for the base of Buttermilk last March and it was reviewed by Pitkin County's planning commission in June, where access and transit issues were raised.

According to the Aspen Daily News, the state agency has indicated wanting to sell.

Negotiations began after planners realized that the state owns a 60-foot-wide strip in between the county-owned parking lot and the ski company's property.
