At Lone Mountain Land Company’s bustling construction site in Town Center, rooms inside the Wilson Hotel are coming together and steel beams used to create the Plaza Lofts building next door should appear in the next month. 

Arizona Snowbowl depends on recycled water.

Flush to fluff

If it weren’t for manmade snow, there’d be little snow at all for Arizona Snowbowl ski resort this season. But thanks to the use of reclaimed water, the resort remains open for business with seven lifts and more than 30 trails.

Greg Blaufuss is worried about his son Spencer, who lives in a 1984 Bluebird International bus near the corner of Gooch Hill Road and Highway 191 in Gallatin Gateway.
