Aspen Ski Company CEO Mike Kaplan addressed Snowmass Village Town Council as part of the two entities’ biannual meeting on Monday … The future of the partially built 1 million-square-foot Snowmass Base Village real estate development was topmost on the agenda.“I’m personally engaged on this issue every day, for many many hours, as is this senior team,” said Kaplan, indicating the other four or five SkiCo executives at the meeting. Kaplan added that the company’s owners, the Crown family, are also heavily involved.“We’re in talks with Related Companies [the New York-based managing partner of the development team], and with associated parties on how to get this jump-started again,” Kaplan said. “In the long term I’m confident something is going to happen.”
