This past July, the company announced it was dialing back Ginn’s ambitious plans.  His development required too much water. The revised plan removed the golf course; cut the skiable terrain almost by half, from 1,300 acres to 674 acres, and reduced the number of chairlifts from 11 to three or four. It replaced the planned non-native vegetation with plants indigenous to the Rocky Mountains. The most modest section of the mountain, by Bolts Lake, would be developed first. Houses near the top of the mountain, and the cleanup of Gilman, would have to wait until the economy improved. Crave decided to remove more than two-thirds of the resort’s commercial center. Instead, Minturn would become the resort’s commercial hub. “We will be pumping our economic dollars into the town,” Kleinkopf says. “This is a very real town, over 100 years old. We want to enhance it. If I come out to the resort, I’m not going to spend all of my time in Minturn, but I will definitely spend a few nights there.”

Bobby Ginn. A laid-back, country gentleman who made his fortune, twice, by developing swanky golf courses and resort communities in the Southeast, Ginn arrived in Colorado in 2004, looking to expand his empire. In the 1980s, he had bought several resorts and residential developments in Hilton Head, South Carolina, before seeking bankruptcy protection during the savings and loan scandal. Ginn resurrected his career in the ’90s by developing high-end resorts in Florida, South Carolina, and the Bahamas, several with the backing of Philadelphia investment company Lubert-Adler. Ginn was a poster child for the high-flying real estate market and spared no expense marketing his brand: He bought a NASCAR team in 2006 and sponsored PGA tour events at his Jack Nicklaus–designed courses. Toby Tobin, a Florida Realtor and blogger. “He could look at a pile of dirt and see a castle.” Turkey Creek sold its land on and around Battle Mountain—including Gilman—to Ginn for $32.75 million in 2004.

With Gilman and the Eagle Mine gone, Minturn lurched toward the close of the century. Schools and businesses left, and its streets and sidewalks decayed. A prideful town that once scoffed at prefab ski villages, Minturn became a bedroom community for resort workers, mechanics, lifties, and bartenders. And while the town tried to maintain its sense of neighborliness—trick-or-treaters from across Eagle County return every Halloween to visit the ungated community whose homes are actually occupied—the town had no answer for the amenities of nearby villages. Minturn, which had once been the lettuce capital of the United States, started a farmers’ market in 1998; Vail and Edwards soon launched competitors. Today, despite Minturn’s membership in the Vail Valley Partnership—the area’s chamber and tourism bureau—the town isn’t even on the bureau’s local maps.

Vail rebuilt Two Elks and the chairlifts. The Earth Liberation Front arsonists remained at large. (They were eventually convicted and sentenced to prison in 2007.) In October 1999, Vail dropped its plans for the Battle Mountain development and stated that it wanted to turn portions of the land into open space through a conservation easement. Turkey Creek sued Vail for backing out of the development deal. As that court case dragged on, Category III was renamed Blue Sky Basin and opened to acclaim in 2000. In 2003, a judge ruled in favor of Turkey Creek. Now Turkey Creek, which wasn’t interested in developing the land itself, needed to find a buyer—a visionary rich and bold enough to clean up multiple Superfund sites, knock down the ghost town of Gilman, secure hard-fought water rights, and convince Minturn that a ski development was in its best interests. For all its difficulties, Battle Mountain was still considered the holy grail of a potential ski resort. All it needed was a messiah.

Miller Type Foundry: Gilman
From the site: “The idea for Gilman started simple enough, a serif typeface that works well for large amounts of text. However, after many struggles creating a quality typeface digitally, I decided to first draw the complete alphabet by hand on paper, and then trace that digitally. The result is a unique workhorse typeface with a subtle “human touch” that is very rare in this modern technological age. Gilman has extensive language support and comes with many opentype features like true small caps, tabular lining figures, stylistic alternates, ligatures and more. Gilman Sans (derived from the serif) is an excellent compliment and works together harmoniously with Gilman on the page.”
