  • Help us Olympic Games 2012 you are our only hope.

    http://sports.espn.go.com/olympics/w...ory?id=4843354

    Is it me, or is it kind of weird that the hotel could possibly be auctioned off during the Olympics? I have never been to Whistler, family and friends of mine have been there and have said that it is really a magnificent resort. I only hope that the 2012 Olympic games can save this hotel, I hear that the skiing at Whistler (when there is snow) is truly amazing.

    Never heard of it. Ski resorts are not the type of thing that a lowly federal employee can afford...

      After doing some more reading on the wall street journal blog and talking to my brother who is in the Commercial Real Estate field, he emailed me this:

      Whistler is owned my Intrawest LLC which is owned by Fortress. Looks like they are going to be refinancing and have no plans of losing the resort. Some times when owners look to refinances you will see foreclosure listings in the paper which is what is going on here. Helps the owner because most times it can lesson the value of the property giving them a better rate on the refinance (kind of a slimy move but works)
      So, it might not be as bad as the article or headline suggests.

        The Whistler/Blackcomb area is some of the most beautiful country and SKIING in the world... Someone will soak that up in a heartbeat..
