    There are some big changes coming to Powder Ridge in Middlefield, and Chef Kevin Cottel, of “Hell’s Kitchen” fame, is joining the organization to offer fine dining.

    Shawn Hayes, CEO of Powder Ridge, said they are redefining what a ski resort is locally and the local destination will be an adventure sports resort.

    “We’re not reopening Powder Ridge as another local ski area. We’re trying to do it as a true adventure sports resort,” Hayes said.

    Cottle is going to be the executive chef of Fire at the Ridge and offer fine dining in the lodge.

    There will also be casual dining and shopping at Powder Ridge.

    “It’s sports shopping  for skiing, biking, etc., but also Christmas shopping, so it’s a destination  for all of the family,” Hayes said.

    The owners are also behind Brownstone Exploration & Discovery Park in Portland. “So you’re going to have adventure sports year-round,” Hayes said.
