A joint 7/31/17 press release from KSL Capital Partners and Henry Crown and Co. announced the completion of the acquisition of Intrawest Resorts Holdings and Mammoth Resorts. A new company has been formed, Squaw Valley Ski Holdings, which now owns 12 mountain resorts: Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, Snow Summit, Bear Mountain and June Mountain in California; Steamboat Ski & Resort and Winter Park Resort in Colorado; Blue Mountain Ski Resort in Ontario; Mont Tremblant Resort in Quebec; Stratton Mountain Resort in Vermont; and Snowshoe Mountain Resort in West Virginia.
The Crown family also owns the Aspen Skiing Co., but the four Aspen ski resorts – Snowmass, Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, and Buttermilk – will continue to be owned separately from Squaw Valley Ski Holdings.
Squaw Valley Ski Holdings boasts that its resorts enjoy a combined 20,000 skiable acres with approximately six million skier visits and the world’s leading heli-ski operator. Look for a new marketing campaign by the company promoting a new name and branding before the 2017/2018 ski season. The company also assured pass-holders that all existing passes will be honored for the upcoming season, including the Rocky Mountain Super Pass +, the M.A.X. Pass, and the Mountain Collective.
