Jay Peak

The instantly recognizable Jay Peak, as seen from Lowell Mountain.

Vail Resorts, a ski industry behemoth that has been gobbling up local resorts in recent years, is not interested in Jay Peak. Other companies, however, have visited the Northeast Kingdom resort, a company official told a local town board during a recent meeting.

One could-be buyer that toured Jay Peak is a rival of Vail in the resort consolidation business, Alterra Mountain Co., based in Denver. It also owns Tremblant ski resort in Quebec and Stratton in Vermont.

Officials have been tight-lipped about the sale of Jay Peak since it hit the market earlier this year.

Michael Goldberg, Jay Peak’s court-appointed receiver, is seeking through the sale to recoup money for EB-5 investors who put money into the resort for massive upgrades over nearly a decade — a process that has led to fraud allegations and criminal charges.
