Tamarack homeowners work to buy, open ski lifts

Here's a news item from the Associated Press:  BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Tamarack Resort homeowners want to buy two ski lifts that Bank of America has been trying to tear out. Tamarack Municipal Association director Tim Flaherty told The Associated Press on Tuesday he's been in discussions with the bank. Bank of America was stiffed on the lifts by Tamarack majority owner Jean-Pierre Boespflug, who disappeared this year when the bank sought $4 million. Even with Boespflug on the lam, Flaherty says he's also working to open the ski resort for a second straight year. Tamarack Municipal Association ran a limited season last year on a $1 million budget, earning a small profit. Flaherty is now in talks with Idaho over another sublease to 2,100 acres of public land where the ski runs are located, in advance of a Dec. 15 opening.
