Mount Washington sold to company known for snowmaking technology

Vancouver Island’s snow-starved Mount Washington Ski Resort has been sold to a Utah-based company renowned for its snow-making technology.

The sale to Pacific Group Resorts Inc., reportedly in the works for years, includes the ski hill and most of the land surrounding the base of the resort, while the current owners will hang on to two pieces of prime development land.

“We’ve been working with George Stuart and Darryl Eddy for a couple years now on the transition of the resort to new ownership,” PGRI president and general manager Peter Gibson said in a media release. “It finally worked out that this was the right time, and we are very excited to have the opportunity to add Mount Washington to our portfolio.”
