According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Blue Knob All Seasons Resort has been sold by owner Richard Gauthier to a group of Pittsburgh investors, all of whom are skiers.
Sustainable Hospitality & Development, the new proprietors, will pay $62,500 annually for the first 10 years, $100,000 per year for the next 10 years and $120,000 annually for the last nine years.
The resort, the second highest mountain in Pennsylvania, has 1,072 feet of vertical and 1,385 acres.
The Pittsburgh Gazette reports that
“The new management team is evaluating all aspects of the resort. In addition to addressing deferred maintenance, they hope to make updates to snowmaking, the lodge and the snow grooming fleet as well as other potential improvements.”
Despite the change in ownership, operations should stay on schedule, opening for skiing and riding in late November to early December.
