Another $1-Billion Expansion Over the Next Ten Years at Tremblant
$95 Million from Government of Canada
and Government of Québec.

Intrawest doesn't mind peaks and valleys in its business, as long as they're covered with snow. Its 9 ski resorts in Canada and the US include Whistler Blackcomb in British Columbia, Copper Mountain in Colorado, and Stratton in Vermont. Intrawest also owns the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort in Florida. Other holdings include Canadian Mountain Holidays, a provider of helicopter access to ski and hiking trails; Abercrombie & Kent, a luxury safari and tour operator; and about 30 golf courses in the US and Canada. In 2006 the company was taken private by New York-based private equity firm Fortress Investment Group in a deal worth about $2.8 billion, including the assumption of more than $990 million in debt.




Envisioning the Tremblant to come - WHEN MORE REALLY IS MORE

Lorne Bassel is currently heading up Intrawest's developments across Eastern North America and in Europe. So why continue to grow Tremblant? "I have a history here, and Tremblant is our baby," Bassel says. "We're taking the resort to the next chapter of the Tremblant story, but we've asked ourselves, as fundamentally as you have to ask yourself in life, one important question: 'is more better?'"

When it comes to growing Tremblant, the answer that echoes clearly throughout the mountain is a resounding yes.........more

Resort-Area Land Gets Another Lift
By Sheila Muto
From The Wall Street Journal Online

As skiers rush to buy homes and condos at the base of their favorite mountain, prices for land around the resorts are rising. That will give resort operator Intrawest Corp. a boost when it sells off 44 acres of land at Keystone Resort in Colorado.

Intrawest, which is a public company based in Vancouver, British Columbia, operates resorts ranging from Whistler-Blackcomb in British Columbia to Stratton Mountain in Vermont to Mountain Creek in New Jersey. It came to own the land a little more than a year ago when it dissolved its development partnership with rival ski-resort operator Vail Resorts Inc. at Keystone.......more

It was those views, in fact, that made Mr. Evis first consider the property for a high-end development. "Generally speaking, in the Laurentian Mountains, developers are looking for lakefront, water or views from the mountaintop. We're fortunate here because we have those," he says. The natural attributes and existing reputation of Mont Tremblant helped establish it as a recreational real estate hot spot as well, when Intrawest first started marketing its Mont Tremblant Resort...more
