The court case over access to Top Chapman's Bear Creek mining claims/possible ski area in Telluride is closing up in a rather undramatic fashion. Lawyers walked much of Gold Hill Road and the surrounding area last Friday to get a sense of the road and what exactly it accessed, and now have til the 26th to submit final arguments in writing. Chapman is claiming he is allowed access to his claims by crossing Telluride Ski Co's private property on Gold Hill Road since the road was the primary means of accessing the upper valley for 19th-century miners.
