CASTLE ROCK - In a state known for its skiing, how likely is it that people will head to a year-round snow-sports center covered with synthetic snow?
Very. At least that's what Shawn Temple, development director at Weston SolutionsInc., thinks.
Weston is based in West Chester, Pennsylvania, but has offices in Lakewood and Colorado Springs. Weston Solutions is a national, employee-owned company that delivers integrated environmental, sustainability, property redevelopment, energy and construction solutions, according to its website.
Recently the company entered into a letter of intent with the town of Castle Rock for a public-private partnership to develop the Castle Rock Year-Round Snow Sports Center at Philip S. Miller Park.
The center would offer skiing, snowboarding and tubing on slopes covered with Snowflex, a snow-like synthetic facility.
The letter of intent allows Weston to further research the feasibility of building such a facility, said Jeff Brauer, Castle Rock's assistant director of parks and recreation.
