    There are no such rumors even within highest Attitash management. They have heard nothing, and do not expect to until the deal is done. Until then it's business as usual, but long term agreements and...

    I also don't see Sugarbush making any moves. Win loves where he is at, and would only sell to a like minded group.

    I doubt Vail is interested. It has already been run on the Mount Snow ticket and was a money losing proposition.

    The Patenaude's aren't sweating any bullets over it. Business as usual for them. Snowmaking, snowmaking and snowmaking and affordable lift improvements. Theyll keep printing money.

    Only a minor detail but they were not forced to divest Sugarbush (like Cranmore/WV) upon the formation of ASC (LBO + SKI). The sale to Summit Ventures came later as part of restructuring.
