Tyrol Basin: New owner, new dreams

Tyrol Basin Ski & Snowboard Area near Mount Horeb may become a year-round destination, according to a story in the Wisconsin State Journal.

The resort has changed hands and new owner Nathan McGree (with three minority owners), is looking to make the 126-acre property more than a winter destination.

Ideas being considered may include a potential haunted house each fall, an eight-lane tubing run, and a restaurant and/or concert venue. McGree replaces the former GM, Josh Faber, who moved to Colorado.
