    To prevent Vail from taking over Solitude.

    Solitude is on its own.

    Alterra name is cr*p. Too close to Altria, which is the name that Phillip Morris gave to itself a couple of years ago. Why choose a name which is so similar to a tobacco company?

    Combination of Altitude and Terrain supposedly.

    Never even heard of Altria and barely know what Phillip Morris is. How well known is the owner of a bunch of cigarette brands these days?

    Was Vail looking to purchase Solitude? Why would that have pushed Deer Valley to come in and purchase it? I know that Brighton was looking to purchase Solitude, but that fell through in 2014.

    I never heard of Altria either and had no idea Philip Morris re-named their parent company to that (all the way back in 2003 apparently). Also just learned they own Chateau Ste Michelle winery which I didn't know.

    Without the Aspen resorts I don't think VR will have met their match.

    Talisker had proposed Ski Link and Vail was interested in doing it.

    Solitude was on the market for a while. Deer Valley didn't want Vail to have a stranglehold on the market.
