FLAGSTAFF– The Colorado investor who recently bought the Snowbowl ski resort in Flagstaff and the Purgatory resort in Durango, Colo., adds them to two other properties – Sipapu and Pajarito in New Mexico – giving him the largest collection of ski resorts in the Southwest. James Coleman has said he will not raise prices at Snowbowl, where skiers will also get privileges at the other resorts. Workers are looking forward to changes expected under Coleman, who made Sipapu the fastest-growing ski resort in New Mexico.
