HM Summer Projects CCIDA Signs Off on Several Projects for HoliMont Story by John Thomas Staff Writer HoliMont Developments Dave Riley from HoliMont was on hand for the monthly meeting of the CCIDA to give details on several projects HoliMont will be working on over the summer. But first he gave some details on the WestMont Ridge development. He said work on the project is “well underway” with grading for the roads and installation of the sewer and water pipes making good progress. He said they anticipate working out a deal with a developer to build the condo units in several stages. Getting back to the summer projects, Riley talked about several they have planned. He said the installation of Sneak Peek the new quad chair last summer had taken a lot of time, and that some projects were held over for this summer. The projects include: replacing some of the air and water lines to some of the snow making guns, rebuilding a generator, some lift house renovations, and bathroom renovations in the main lodge. He said one project had been on the books for some time, but now they were “finally going to do it.” The plan is to build a “warming hut” at the top of the Cascade Chair. The hut was inspired by the Yellowstone Club in Montana, an exclusive millionaires club with members like Bill Gates and Oprah Winfrey. The See CCIDA page 9 Kicking off the weekend will be the Maria Aurigema Band, her name means “golden gem” in Italian, performing at Balloons Friday at 7:00pm. Maria started guitar lessons at the age of eight. At thirteen she discovered Led Zeppelin, and took up guitar in earnest. Being the only girl in school who could really wail on a guitar cemented her passion. She studied jazz in Buffalo with Stu Weissman and lists as her influences Pat Metheny and John McLaughlan. Over the years she has played with Jimmy Thackery, Tommy Castro, Kenny Neal, and Coco Montoya.
