Alpine Meadows sale to close soon

The pending sale of Alpine Meadows ski resort to Homewood Mountain Resort owner JMA Ventures will be finalized this July, according to JMA Ventures President Art Chapman.

Alpine Meadows owner Powdr Corp. struck a tentative agreement with JMA Ventures in April to sell the ski resort. Between April and June, JMA Ventures reviewed the resort’s records and agreed to finalize the purchase, according to Chapman.

Chapman said his plan for the resort is to “to bring it back as a destination for locals.”

Boosting customer service, adding entertainment and upgrading the property are all part of that plan, he said.

“We hope to make some changes,” said Chapman. “We don’t have time for a major re-work [before the 2007-08 winter season].”

Chapman said he was meeting with Alpine Meadows employees on Wednesday.

As for the ticket prices and season pass prices for next season, Chapman said that has not been determined. The resort will consider offering a single pass that would give skiers and snowboarders access to both Homewood and Alpine Meadows, said Chapman.
