Very unfortunate news. The place appears to have quite the descent size. 4 quads in addition to other chairs and surface lifts.

At $2.9 million it would seem like quite a reasonable deal for a well setup mountain. Hopefully it can find new ownership to continue operating.

Thanks for sharing.

This sale could be a direct result of climate change over the last couple decades.  The hill is fairly far south with not a lot of elevation. I'm sure their ski season has gotten shorter and shorter or at least far more unpredictable.  Places like Blue Mountain can manage because they have high tech snow making and other activities to keep clients busy.  I think we may see a lot of small family run hills close in the next few years.
