Who owns your ski resort? Lehman Bros? Robert Redford? The US Government?
Ski Area Management just put together the “Ski Area Ownership Timeline” and it’s pretty goddamn interesting.
Go to this website to see the complete list: Ski Are Management.com
The Big Dogs are color coded: Boyne, Booth, American Ski Co, Vail, CNL, Intrawest, Peak Resorts, Powder, Resorts of the Canadian Rockies….And they own most all of ‘em.
This is good stuff to know. The graph is put together horribly, but it’s legible. It’s kinda scary to see who owns which resort and how many resorts they own. This list also does a good job of showing which mountains close down and which just opened or reopened.
