Utah-based Powdr Corp. acquires Eldora Mountain Resort
Powdr Corp., the adventure lifestyle company headquartered in Park City, announced its acquisition of Eldora Mountain Resort Monday.
Powdr called the acquisition a “strategic complement” to its other Colorado resort, Copper Mountain, in a press release.
“Colorado’s Front Range is one of the best ski markets in the world. Expanding our footprint here with now two of the most accessible resorts to serve those passionate skiers is an enormous honor,” said John Cumming, CEO and owner of Powdr. “Eldora is admired as a leading entry point and training ground for children and beginners. We want to work hard for more people to join us in the adventure-filled world of snow sports.”
“I’ve had the privilege of knowing John Cumming for nearly 30 years,” said William Killebrew, previous owner of Eldora. “He has built a great adventure company and has the reputation as an outstanding operator. When we decided to consider selling Eldora, we wanted to put our resort in the best hands possible and Powdr was the first company that came to mind.”
Brent Tregaskis, general manager at Eldora since 2015, will continue to run operations for the resort.
“We are very excited to work with Brent and his team to continue to deliver amazing experiences to those that love Eldora,” said COO/EVP of Powdr Resorts Tim Brennwald.
There is no pricing change anticipated for Eldora’s Super Value Season Pass for the upcoming 2016/2017 season. Eldora is also included in the Rocky Mountain Super Pass Plus season pass program.
