Stratton Mountain sale

Hello Skiers!  Looks like Stratton Mountain will be getting some upgrades in a year or so.  There are mixed emotions from people whether ski area conglomerates are good or bad.  It seems that either way, they are continuing to happen.  I think Stratton will get some needed new systems, unfortunately not until 2018-2019 and beyond.  As part of Intrawest, Stratton Mountain along with Snowshow, Steamboat, Winter Park, Tremblant, and Blue Mountain will be a part of an even larger (still to be named) ski company.  This ski and real estate company will also include Aspen, Squa Valley, Alpine Meadows, Canadian Mountain Holidays (a heli-ski company), Mamouth, Snow Summit, Bear Mountain, and June Mountain.  The holding companies that are the new owners are KSL Capital and Henry Crown and Co.  Let's hope this adds many exciting opportunities to visit these other ski areas and it adds some advanced technologies to Stratton's snowmaking, grooming, lifts and overall ski experience!

Breaking Ground!!!!

As a Mount Snow skier I could not be more excited about the brand new 38,000 sq ft lodge that the resort owners just broke ground on at Carinthia, except I am! As an owner of a condo in Glen Run that runs alongside the Grommet Trail and along the base of the Carinthia area I am more than ecstatic about the new services that will be right in [...]
