RANGELEY, Maine (AP) — Operators of Maine’s Saddleback ski mountain say they may have an announcement this week.
Operators of the ski mountain in Rangeley announced via social media that they’re in ‘‘serious negotiations’’ with a potential buyer who plans to open the resort for the winter.
Owner Mark Berry said previously that the resort would close if it could not replace a 51-year-old double chairlift with a faster, modern four-person lift. Since then there have been discussions with several buyers.
The resort, most of its 121 condominiums and 400 acres were put on the market in 2012 for $14 million. It’s currently for sale for $9.5 million with 2,070 acres.

Called their Chamber of Commerce. They have no information, just what we have heard, "it's in negotiations, and we expect [hope?] they will open. Could be a blow to the economy unless they can amp up their snowmachine business. :(

I hear rumors at the ski show that the deal is about done. I also heard that they probably would have a late December or early January opening. In addition, lots of the winter staff are hanging in there.

On epicski, one correspondent said he talked with a condo owner 2 weeks ago. According to him there are only 4 employees remaining and the locals are lining up other work for the season.

LOL! Not in the business, getting back in sync, just like 99% of the rest of the customers. Nothing wrong with that, it's a conversation!
You are restating 80% of what has been said all ready. Fixed your spelling too.
