Three Sisters resort back
CANMORE, Alberta — There's life in the long moribund Three Sisters real estate development at Canmore. The project has been in court-ordered receivership for almost four years, and there's debt of $115 million.
An outstanding issue is how much space will be required for a wildfire corridor before the project can resume development. Now, town officials along with PricewaterhouseCoopers, the appointed manager and receiver of Three Sisters, along with the province have agreed on a framework for discussions.
That idea under discussion is leaving nearly 400 acres undeveloped. But there's potential for 2,459 residential and 1,500 hotel units that would be transferred to other parts of Three Sisters.
Nothing seems to be set in concrete, but rather, the parties think they might be able to agree on the details by next April.
Subaru the leading car maker in Jackson Hole
JACKSON, Wyo. — If there were an official car of Jackson Hole, it would have to be the Subaru. So says the Jackson Hole News&Guide. Subaru is the most common make of vehicle in Teton County, accounting for 15 per cent of all registered cars.
Interviews with Subaru owners revealed deep devotion. "That car was a total tank," said one, of his 1988 Subaru GI hatchback. It got 29 miles to a gallon of gasoline, it never messed up, and it never left him stranded by the side of the road.
"I never had to do anything to it except change tires and change oil," said the owner, Dennis Comer.
Neil Gleichman, a teacher across Teton Pass in Idaho, has 354,000 miles on his 1995 blue Subaru Legacy. He'd figured that he was going to trade it in at 300,000, but instead he's now shooting to join the million-mile club.
Dave Auge, co-owner of Teton Motors, told the newspaper that Subarus are popular because they're an all-wheel-drive vehicle. Too, the fun-loving, pet-focused outdoorsy culture that surrounds Subaru fits in well with Jackson. "There're not very many Subarus that don't have dog hair in them," he said.
Recovering real estate
STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. — Real estate sales continue to recover as lowered prices meeting willing buyers have produced closing that rival, in quantity if not individual sales prices, the frantic pace of the boom years.
Consider the Telluride area, where total dollar volume in October was 132 per cent compared to the previous year.
Altogether, 2012 has been a rip-snorting year in sales, second only to 2007, according to Judi Kiernan, of Telluride Consulting.
