Original story:

Granby’s beleaguered ski resort, Granby Ranch, was in turmoil Tuesday morning as local law enforcement officials moved into the area and seized the resort property for failure to pay local taxes.

Few details of the seizure have been released, but the seized property included Granby Ranch’s buildings and the resort’s golf course, according to the Grand County Sheriff’s Office.

It was reported by the sheriff’s office that an owner of the property stated they were en route with a check to fulfill the tax obligation, at which time the property would be released.
