'Bachelor Winter Games' Resort Ordered to Close
The Vermont ski resort served as the backdrop for the Olympics-themed ABC spinoff of 'The Bachelor' franchise that aired in February.
A private Vermont ski resort that was the setting for ABC's The Bachelor Winter Games has been shut down for failing to pay taxes.
A spokeswoman for the Hermitage Club said Monday that the resort missed a required payment to the state and was ordered to close until it is paid. She said the members-only club hopes to reopen by this weekend.
The resort owes more than $1 million in back taxes and recently laid off about 80 people. Last month, a bank filed a foreclosure notice on several properties, saying the club had defaulted on more than $16 million in loans.
The Hermitage Club hosted The Bachelor Winter Games, a four-episode spinoff of The Bachelor that ran in conjunction with the Olympics.
Host Chris Harrison had said the spinoff series might become an annual event.
