A legacy of the fair goes up in flames

It's disappointing to report the Austrian pavilion from the fair, which has been in service as the ski lodge at the Cockaigne ski resort for over 40 years was destroyed by fire last night. No one was injured.

We had just visited the resort earlier this month to shoot an interview with the owner of the resort, Jack VanScoter. We had planned on returning to do more detailed shooting later in the season. Jack and his entire staff were wonderful and accommodating. Even though we'd only visited once, it was clear how special Cockaigne was to the community and those who worked there.

Time will tell whether the resort can re-build. Our hearts go out to Jack and all the employees at Cockaigne.
