Thanks for the post, Gary. No details, except what I read online
(google "Garnet Hill Lodge owner"). Maybe you remember a few of us
on this newsgroup being pretty skeptical at the time those Boston
beer-loving yuppies bought it from George Heim, and then fired
longtime (original) Nordic Director*** Carlson in favor of some
recent college grad with a business(?) degree but no real Nordic ski
experience. I guess the new owners had more than a little in common
with the Boston couple that bought the LA Dodgers. So I hope the new
owners, Don and his partner Mindy, are able to make a real go of it.
Along the way, it'd be nice if they'd bring back some of the old staff.
