Hilton Head Resort is closing as head resorts are closing in the wake of Hurricane Harvey
The Hilton Head resort in southern Louisiana has been closed for the winter due to severe flooding.
The resort is located in the town of Ewing, located just north of Baton Rouge.
The hotel, which was founded in 1794, was built on a former plantation site.
The resort was one of the first in Louisiana to open and offer a full-service ski and snowboard resort.
Hilton Head has had multiple fires in the past.
In 2016, a fire broke out at the resort.
The fire burned for three days, and destroyed about 1,200 structures.
A few years earlier, the resort had another fire that destroyed more than 700 structures.
The hotel’s mainstay, the Ewing Skatepark, closed in January of 2017.
In the wake the fire, the hotel’s snowboarding and snowboarding facilities were moved to a new location.
The Ewing Ski & Snowboard Center reopened in 2017.
Hilton, a subsidiary of Marriott International, was formed in 1955, with the original Ewing Hotel being the first of its kind in the U.S.
The Ewing Resort opened in 1927.
The company operates four resorts in Louisiana and seven in the United States, including three in Louisiana.
