Mt. Snow parent company gets Hermitage snow guns

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — A subsidiary of Mount Snow’s new parent company has submitted the winning bid for 41 snow guns and other snowmaking equipment in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Vermont.

Vail Holdings LLC offered $353,750 for the snowmaking equipment.

Judge Colleen Brown says if the company fails to meet the agreement, the equipment will be sold to Alterra Mountain Company U.S. Inc, another bidding company.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports the equipment was sold to settle debts associated with the bankrupt Hermitage Club.

The Hermitage was a private ski resort at Haystack Mountain in Wilmington that includes a golf course, inns and restaurants. The state shut down its business operations last year for failure to pay sales and use taxes.
