Fate of Silver Mountain Resort still unknown

Fate of Silver Mountain Resort still unknown

A public auction for Silver Mountain Resort ended on March 19th but the fate of the one of the largest employers in the Silver Valley is still a mystery.

Jeld-Wen, a company known for window manufacturing, owns the ski resort and put it up for auction earlier this year. The auction allowed bidders to bid on the resort in it's entirety or on individual pieces such as the gondola and water park. 

Before the auction ended, Murph Yule, the Ameribid representative handling the sale, said it could take months before any final sale is made, if one is made at all. Calls to Jeld-Wen, Mr. Yule and Silver Mountain have not been returned. 

However, the Shoshone County Assessor's Office said that nothing regarding a sale or transfer of title has gone through their office. 

KXLY will continue to follow this story and update it as information becomes available.
