Tahoe ski resorts desperate for worker housing are even turning to brutal campsites
Posted on by H312ud1
With winter approaching and scant housing options for employees who hawk lift tickets or concessions, Palisades ski resort in Tahoe tried an online experiment last year.
The company opened a campground near Highway 89, where workers could park their vans and brave the snowy months with no heat, water or electricity. Palisades operated and maintained the campsite, which boasted a single amenity: waterless toilets with holding tanks underneath.
