From Jack Dunn, BMSA Managing Director
recent Hollywood film "Brokeback Mountain" has generated
unwanted attention to Brokeback Mt. Ski Area. The management of
the Ski Area would like to stress that the aforementioned movie
is based on a literary source and is a work of fiction.
to some media reports the Ski Area was never involved with the filmmakers
nor does the ski area have any interest in utilizing the popularity
of the film to further its marketing goals. While the story of the
film contains positive messages, Brokeback Mountain Ski Area is
a family oriented resort and as such shares little in common with
the fictional characters and situations depicted within the film.
is our understanding that the filmmakers and the author of the original
story were unaware of the fact that the Brokeback Mountain Ski Area
in Wyoming has been in business since 1965, long before the story
has been written.
