Intrawest to buy Steamboat

$265 million deal announced today

Intrawest ULC has agreed to buy the Steamboat Ski Area and related assets for $265 million, American Skiing Co. CEO B.J. Fair announced today. The deal will bring an end to ASC's 10-year run as the ski area's owner. Included in the sale are the resort and all resort-owned operations, all of Steamboat's resort-owned real estate assets, the commercial core of the Steamboat Grand Hotel and Condominiums and the company's interest in the Walton Pond Apartments complex.
