Wintergreen asks members for financial help

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The lack of snow is bad business for ski resorts. Now, Wintergreen Resort is asking its members for help in dealing with financial problems.

Wintergreen is in need of some green because Bank of America just ended its line of credit for the resort.

Now at least a dozen employees could soon get pink slips.

The resort says this mild winter is hurting its bottom line. A lack of natural snow plus a slower snow-making schedule has kept many skiers at home.

General Manager Hank Thiess tells us the resort has had some setbacks because of the warmer weather.

The Nelson County Times reports the money problems stem from not only the warm winter, but also ongoing negotiations over conservation tax credits.

Wintergreen's board of directors chairman just sent out a letter asking for members to help with its financial problems.

The letter asks resort members to help raise $6 million.

To raise that money, Wintergreen says it will start sending out dues-renewal notices to members four months earlier.

It also plans to either eliminate or restructure 12 jobs at the resort.
