Both after deaths of longtime owners. These little places are passing with the boomers. The kids want to cash in and live in Florida.

why would any sane person buy a small eastern ski area?

unpredictable weather
aging infrastructure
liability insurance
seasonal employees
the list is a mile long

Yeah my post was kind of a joke. I think the ideal candidate would be a wealthy retired CEO who loves skiing and wants to stay busy.

Not that I'd wish this on any mountain, but I wonder if Vail would be interested to sell more of their Epic passes.

Just saw this- Berkshire East is going to buy Catamount. I think I approve. Now they just need to join the freedom pass.

The co-owner of Bousquet died several ago. His partner in life and business, Sherry Roberts, is in her 60s and still in charge. She is starting the process of looking for a new owner but isn't in a hurry.

So many places to ski, so many stories to do.

The family that skis together, stays together.
