State Sets Public Hearing On Vail's Bid To Buy Mount Sunapee Ski Resort

The state will hold a public hearing later this month on a private company's bid to buy Mount Sunapee Resort.

Colorado-based Vail announced last month it planned to buy Mount Sunapee Resort in Newbury, along with three other ski resorts in Vermont, Colorado and Washington.

Vail has said it plans to increase capital spending and investments at the four resorts by millions once the purchases go through.

New Hampshire currently leases state park land for Sunapee resort, so this purchase would require transferring that lease to Vail.

The state has said it's open to the idea, but wants more information about the terms of the deal.

Now, the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources has set a public hearing to talk more about the proposal and take community input. 

The meeting is July 25 at 6 p.m., at the resort's Sunapee Lodge.

Annie has covered the environment, energy, climate change and the Seacoast region for NHPR since 2017. She leads the newsroom's climate reporting project, By Degrees.
