What do T-Bar and Mark Twain have in common? Both were subject to rumors of their pending demise. “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated” is a popular misquote attributed to author Samuel Clemens, known by his pen name, Mark Twain (it’s based on a letter Twain sent to a reporter who had asked Twain about rumors that he was dying). Earlier last winter, with ski corp. moving dirt at the base of the mountain, rumors also circulated that the beloved T-bar was on its last legs, with reports of a new landowner booting the fine establishment for a new development. But a flash of brilliant investigative reporting unearthed that that report, like Twain’s, is unfounded and that they’ll be slinging suds and scrumptious grub like usual this season.
