In its second ski season in business — after a long, dry summer and off-season — Snowmass’ Base Village has a few things to brag about when it opens on Thanksgiving weekend…A brand-name hotel. New restaurants. More parking. But about a year after the credit markets dried up and the bottom fell out of the real estate market, future plans are still uncertain for Base Village owner Related WestPac and its investors. “I know we haven’t lived up to a lot of community expectations in terms of delivery, but we’re not quite dead yet,” Related WestPac CEO Dwayne Romero told the Snowmass Village Town Council on Monday night.Romero was referring to the delays in building, which have left two buildings wrapped in plastic for the upcoming winter season, and no system in place for guests arriving via the Base Village parking garage.
