A once-popular ski resort in the area is making a comeback, just in time for the winter season. It comes after a devastating fire in 2011 burned the place to the ground.
The Cockaigne Ski Resort in Chautauqua County has been rebuilding for the past few years, and is expected to open again in just a few months.
"We're really excited about getting the area opened again because there was a lot of jobs and a lot of people called it home," Owner Isaac Gratto said. "When the lodge burned and when the place closed they lost their skiing home."
Skiers and Snowboarders can hit the 15 different slopes the resort offers once the place opens. Construction crews are fixing up the place that has been shut down since that 2011 fire.
Gratto said the resort is rebuilding with a broader mission, and that's to be more than just a winter destination.
Construction crews are currently installing ski lifts, building a new lodge, as well as an outdoor stage built for all kinds of musical acts.
Gratto said the stage allows the resort to be a year round destination.
Cockaign Ski Resort will also provide around 50 full-time jobs, which Gratto said will help boost the Cherry Creek community where the resort is located.
"Really what makes a business work, is the ability to be open all year round, and generate revenue all year round and to employ people for all four seasons," Gratto said.
The resort is set to open on December 1st of this year.
