Market Comment There will be no more construction in Cottonwood Canyon once Powder Ridge is completed; therefore inventory is going quickly. In addition, because the canyon is 90 percent Forest Service land, its limited market remains very steady.

Market Comment The market at Whistler/Blackcomb is very active because of the low Canadian dollar. Buyers seem to be primarily from the U.S., Hong Kong and Great Britain.
