From February 2006:
Here are some updated details on Wild Horse Meadows Steamboat
(TM). Wild Horse Meadows
(TM) is in the area above the the Tennis center and meadows parking lot. They now plan several hundred units made up of houses, town homes, condos and a condo hotel with a gondola linking it to the base area. Views from this parcel are great and the team putting this development is first class. Members of the team have been involved in quite a few quality projects like Catamount in Steamboat Springs and many other projects around the western US.

Wildhorse Meadows could add 600 residential units within 10 years

"We're ready to go," Ward said this week. "We have all of our capital arranged and closed and ready to be invested in the community." The plan calls for a range of dwellings as well as commercial buildings and amenities to include a public learning center on 47 acres formerly known as Tennis Meadows. The project could take 7 to 10 years.
The site wraps around the ski area's remote parking lot and extends up a steep ridge to Mount Werner Circle. The project would be linked to Gondola Square by a people-mover gondola. As proposed by the development team, it would be private, however, Ward said this week that he remains open to a partnership with the ski area and the city that would make the lift public. "We don't have our hand out here for this lift," Ward said. "We think from a community sense, it would make sense if this lift were available for public use. We're willing to make our private easement available for public use." Ward has proposed an equal cost sharing among his development, Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp. and the city. However, he emphasized that he and his partners are prepared to build a lower capacity lift at their expense. "We're not asking for any money to build our lift," Ward said. ...Cipped here...
