    Not a fan of ski resort mega-mergers & acquisitions. Makes SOTC that much harder.

    They put in a lot of effort into the new name, but I like it. Interesting tidbits from the article.

    the company reinforced its position on allowing its properties to essentially run autonomously. “At each destination, Alterra Mountain Company leaders are empowered to be decisive, creative, and bold in order to retain each mountain’s authentic character."
    Clearly they are disassociating themselves from Vail/being Vail type. They are setting themselves up as the Anti-Vail for probably a higher end of clients. Or potentially just trying to calm mountain stakeholders and tell them that they are NOT going to be Vail.

    Alterra said in the coming months it will announce new season pass products that will provide access to all of its existing mountains, plus many additional benefits.
    Most insight into their pass products that they've given us yet. Interesting that they will go with a universal epic style pass. Additional benefits probably being days at the Aspen mountains or maybe event Mountain Collective benefits?

    Actually it doesn't include Aspen's resorts. They will remain under control by Aspen Ski Company. I am guessing that is because Aspen Ski Company has a much smaller share of Alterra, compared to KSL

    You're right. The article does not list them...I thought I was nuts, but you're right.

    The destinations that make up Alterra Mountain Company are spread throughout five states and three Canadian provinces: Steamboat and Winter Park in Colorado; Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, Mammoth Mountain, June Mountain and Big Bear Mountain Resort in California; Stratton in Vermont; Snowshoe in West Virginia; Tremblant in Quebec, Blue Mountain in Ontario; Deer Valley in Utah; and CMH Heli-Skiing & Summer Adventures in British Columbia

    Doesn’t Deer Valley own Solitude? Are they not a part of this?
