Correction: Mount Sunapee-Sale story
NEWBURY, N.H. (AP) — In a story June 17 about a proposed takeover of the Mount Sunapee ski area by Vail Resorts, The Associated Press erroneously reported the timing of a public information session. A state advisory committee is holding its regular meeting Tuesday, but the public information session hasn’t yet been scheduled.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Attorney general: Ski area deal requires state approval
A public information session is being planned for a proposed takeover of the Mount Sunapee ski area by Vail Resorts
NEWBURY, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire officials plan to hold a public information session on a proposed takeover of the Mount Sunapee ski area by Vail Resorts.
Attorney General Gordon MacDonald wrote to Republican Gov. Chris Sununu on Friday saying the deal can’t proceed without the approval of the state Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
Vail announced on June 4 that it would be acquiring the operating rights to three ski areas owned by the Mueller family: Sunapee, Okemo in Vermont and Crested Butte in Colorado.
Since New Hampshire opted to lease out the previously state-run Mount Sunapee in 1998, critics have complained that many of the ski area’s financial arrangements have been less than transparent.
The information session hasn’t been scheduled yet.
