Ski Area News

VAIL RESORTS TO PURCHASE WHISTLER BLACKCOMB

A stock and cash transaction for Vail Resorts to purchase Whistler Blackcomb has been unanimously approved by the boards of Whistler and Vail Resorts.  The deal, which still must be approved by Whistler Blackcomb shareholders and Canadian courts, is expected to close this fall.  Vail says that it will include the Whistler Blackcomb in the Epic Pass and other season pass products for the 2017-18 winter and that Whistler’s existing season-pass products will be honored for the 2016-17 winter season. Whistler is a four-season mountain resort sprawled between two side-by-side peaks that are connected by a world record-breaking gondola. Combined, they offer more than 8,000 acres of terrain on 200 trails, 14 alpine bowls and three glaciers.


POSSIBLE CROWDFUNDING TO BUY RED MOUNTAIN

Red Mountain, located in Rossland, BC, is looking to sell itself to local skiers in a crowdfunding project.  Red Mountain is in the first stage of the whole deal, and they want to see who wants to play without asking people to get out their checkbooks...yet.  If the resort finds that there's enough interest, they’ll get into gear—and if you invest, you will become an actual owner of the resort. Money raised would go toward improving the mountain. Red started out as a community owned and operated ski club and, years ago, when the current owner, heard it was going to shut down, he bought the area.


VAIL’S EPIC PASS VALID IN FOUR EUROPEAN COUNTRIES FOR 2016-2017

Vail Resorts announced that it will add Les 3 Vallees, Paradiski and Tignes-Val d’Isere in France, Skirama Dolomiti Adamello Brenta in Italy, 4 Vallees in Switzerland, and Arlberg in Austria to the 2016/2017 Epic Pass lineup.

SKI TRAIN RETURNS TO COLORADO

After 8-years, the ski train will come back in to service this winter using Amtrak and starting on Saturday 7th January 2017 from Denver’s Union. The new service will run every weekend through to March 26th, 2017 and also on Mondays in January and February. The train will carry up to 500 skiers and boarders with tickets costing from $39 for adults with children aged 2 to 12 paying half price.  Trains will leave Denver at 7am, reaching the resort  about 9 a.m.  The new platform at Winter Park Mountain Resort which cost several million dollars to build was funded from the Colorado Department of Transportation, the city of Denver, the Town of Winter Park, the Colorado Rail Passengers Association and Intrawest -- the manager of the ski resort.
