Choteau resident Charles Hlavac, the former manager of the Teton Pass Ski Resort, has purchased the ski area west of Choteau from owner Nick Wood of New Zealand and several other investors.
Hlavac, who managed the ski area from 2010 to 2017, announced on Sept. 6 that he had completed the purchase of the ski area assets through a contract-for-deed with Wood’s resort company and hopes to be able to open the ski area, located on the Helena-Lewis and Clark National Forest about 25 miles west of Choteau, for the 2019-20 ski season.
Hlavac said he is at the beginning of this process and does not want to get ahead of himself. “I want to approach this with humility and caution,” he said. “We have a tremendous amount of work ahead of us, from generators to websites.”
