The ski resort that once was one of the nation’s most popular resorts is closing, leaving a legacy of its own as one of America’s oldest ski resorts and a symbol of the changing face of skiing.
Keystone ski area, located just north of Glacier National Park, has closed as of Tuesday due to severe weather conditions and a loss of power, according to the company that owns the property.
Keystones owner, Ski Pro, said in a statement that due to the weather conditions, it will close for maintenance.
It will be replaced by another ski area.
A video posted to YouTube on Wednesday night shows an employee of Ski Pro cleaning a ski lift in a field.
An employee then appears to be pulling a ski pole.
Another video posted on YouTube showed a worker cleaning the lift.
A worker then appears in the field and is seen putting a ski mask over the face of a man.
The area was once one of Canada’s most famous ski resorts, with some ski guides describing the area as “the best place to ski in the world.”
But, over the past decade, the resort has struggled to recover from the loss of snow and ice that have caused major damage to the ski trails.
In 2014, a fire burned the main lodge of the resort.
That same year, the snow melted and caused the facility to collapse.
The damage caused by that collapse was estimated to be $2 million.
In 2018, a power outage forced the resort to close.
The resort reopened in 2015 after a series of improvements and construction.
But, a lack of snow has continued to cause problems.
In March 2017, an avalanche swept down the main ski lift, breaking windows and causing several injuries.
