    Boyne acquires Shawnee Peak

    Mountain Stewardship Update, from Chet
    Dear Friends of Shawnee Peak,
    I hope that everyone is well and enjoyed a wonderful summer with family and friends!
    Today, I am writing this email with very bittersweet feelings. I recently turned 71 and realized how much of my life and my family’s life has been committed to the stewardship of Shawnee Peak at Pleasant Mountain over the last 27 years. It has been full of fun times, yet not without many challenges at this awesome ski area!
    Despite rumors since my first year of ownership in September 1994, I have never solicited nor received an interest in taking over my stewardship of this great ski area. At a recent casual lunch with industry friends, one mentioned if you ever were to consider a transfer of stewardship we would be very interested. I was caught off-guard, but after discussion with my family we agreed to pursue only if the interested party was upfront with a fair offer, would provide enhanced employee opportunities, continue with capital improvements each year and continue the family friendly atmosphere that I think we have established. They agreed.
    I am excited to announce that we have completed a transaction with Stephen Kircher and Boyne Resorts, a 100% family-owned organization. I know they will maintain the special family vibe of Shawnee Peak. Geoff will still retain a very visible role for the near future.
    This was a very difficult decision for our family, especially me, yet I look forward to many more years of friendship and skiing together. I also realize I need to make some time for my four grandsons while I can still out run / out ski them, but also help them!
    My family is so lucky to have built such great friendships with employees and passholders, many whom have been loyal supporters of Shawnee Peak for all 27 years and then some! Thank you all!
    Shawnee Peak has a great future under the stewardship of Stephen Kircher and his family.
    Sincerely,
    Chet

    Hard to say, Boyne is pretty savvy about who they are and what they do.

    All I know is our GM didn't know about this until 10am yesterday!

    Boyne owns 3 of the 5 “major” vert ski areas in ME. I doubt it will squeeze the other smaller mountains, ME areas are pretty population/geographically separated it will have little impact on the feeder hills. Like people are not going to stop going to Camden, Spruce Mtn, lost Valley, or Titcomb because of Shawnee changing hands. Who knows, might push people to go to Abram, Black, and Saddleback to avoid the Cumberland county crowd.

    I’m loving the added throwback photos to build the stoke for the coming season. Keep ‘em coming!

    ‘88/‘89… Caber boots, MRR rotomats, and Blizzard Thermo V20’s. Stretch pants, padded sweater, rubber Slalom helmet. Classic stick chaser.

    Last season was mostly pretty trash for me with the limited snowfall in the Whites, but it had its moments... thought I'd add some pre-season stoke to the thread from it!
