Annie's House Walk

Posted: Updated:

The new ski lodge at Bottineau Winter Park will be fully finished when the new ski season begins next winter.

It's called Annie's House in memory of Ann Nicole Nelson, the Stanley native who died in the terrorist attacks of 9-11.

Nelson dreamed of building a house and that dream has been carried out by hundreds of volunteers working at the ski area since last fall.

Today, walkers are donating time and money to raise for people to enjoy the year-round activities at Annie's House and help bring Annie's dream to reality in the Turtle Mountains.

The Annie's House Walking Challenge will continue through 4:30 (Friday) on the 3rd floor track at the MSU dome.

A $25 donation will sponsor an individual's entrance to Annie's House facilities.

(Deidre Karhoff, MSU Special Education Major) "For them to have somewhere to go and feel comfortable and hang out. We have Andy who's in a wheelchair and he got to ski in the bi-ski which doesn't happen everyday."

Annie's House at Bottineau Winter Park is an all-access facility designed to help people with disabilities enjoy skiing and other winter activities.

    Call it a case of deja vu, but Ward County voters can expect to see a bond request in front of them early next year, asking for almost the exact amount that they previously approved to build a new county office building and expand the jail.
