In the town, the impending sale to Dundee is welcomed by most, said broker Joel Barnett of Bear Valley Real Estate.
The hope is that Dundee will bring a much-needed impetus for real estate development and closer cooperation between the resort and town.
Three acres of commercially-zoned private land are part of the Bear Valley-Dundee deal, and there is another adjacent private nine-acre chunk that is already master planned for residential resort development, Barnett
A lift linking the town with the ski mountain would also likely be part of Dundee's long-term plan, Barnett said.
"Finch has taken the time to meet with everybody in town, right down to the coffee shop waitress," Barnett
Upgraded amenities will be needed for Bear Valley
to keep pace with the modern ski resort industry, Barnett
At the same time, residents hope Dundee will pick up on the existing Bear Valley atmosphere and try to maintain it, Barnett
