Video of abandoned ski & holiday resort

The explorers who made this video referred to the resort being “1950s” – but most of the buildings look much later to me. The place was in operation until the early 2000s.

I’m just gobsmacked by the size of the place, and how the owners seem to have just walked away. It has a real post-apocalypse feel about it.

People have abviously stripped out some salable equipment and fittings – but there is still a hell of a lot there. Some of the buildings would be quite usable with some minimal restoration work.

It would surely make a great home for some kind of off-grid community.

I’m not suggesting it as a possible loaction for Project Kamp but it is an interesting example of the type of abandoned facilities that exist in some countries (in this case, the USA).

Interesting tale of what happens when “award winning” buildings aren’t wanted or needed anymore.
