September 2, 2008 - Edra Blixseth, who recently won control of Big Sky, Montana's Yellowstone Club, and Sam Byrne, another major owner, have hired the Arizona-based Discovery Land Company, led by Michael Meldman, to manage the private golf and ski club in Big Sky, Montana.
The new, concerted effort is to build infrastructure and improve amenities; finish construction projects postponed or delayed; and begin land planning and development projects, adding 450 residential, condo, and townhome residences in the coming months.
Included in these endeavors are a Family Village adjacent to the Warren Miller Lodge, additional ski facilities on Eglise Mountain, completing the previously planned golf clubhouse, building a luxury spa, finishing the ice rink planned above the parking structure adjacent to the Warren Miller Lodge, creating a baseball field, and improving programs such as fly fishing, camping, and wakeboarding.
Acording to Edra Blixseth:
Today marks a historic milestone for Yellowstone Club as we embark on the next phase of Club enhancements and infrastructure development that will fulfill The Yellowstone Club's original vision and provide our members, their families and guest with and unmatched Montana outdoor lifestyle.
I am delighted to be working with Michael Meldman and Discovery, which I know shares our vision and has the experience and creativity to enhance the mountain living and recreation lifestyle and amenities for our members and their families.
