Saturday, 13th January, 2018

A new grouping of a dozen Canadian and US resorts that was created from scratch in around a week last spring, surprising the North American ski world, has finally decided on a name: The Alterra Mountain Company.

The conglomerate came about when two businesses, Colorado-based finance house KSL Capital Partners (the main investor) and Henry Crown and Company (a smaller investor) which already owns Aspen Ski Company, went on a (guesstimated) $2 billion spending spree and snapped up resorts including Steamboat and Winter Park in Colorado; Mammoth, Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley in California; Deer Valley at Park City in Utah and Eastern Canada's most popular resort, Tremblant in Quebec, along with half-a-dozen others.
