Vail Resorts, Inc. today announced the acquisition of Northstar-at-Tahoe Resort in North Lake Tahoe, Calif., from Booth Creek Resort Properties and other sellers for $63 million.

The purchase gives the Broomfield, Colo.-based ski and real estate company two ski areas in California, including Heavenly, in addition to its four mountains in Colorado: Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Keystone.

The operations of Northstar-at-Tahoe are conducted on land owned by CNL Lifestyle Properties, Inc. which will be leased to Vail Resorts under a long-term agreement. The Sierra-at-Tahoe ski resort is not part of the deal and will continue to be operated by Booth Creek.

“We are thrilled by the opportunity to bring Northstar-at-Tahoe into our family of world-class mountain resorts. With substantial and diverse ski terrain, a completely renovated and modern base village and outstanding guest service, Northstar-at-Tahoe has been one of the fastest growing mountain resorts over the past few years,” said Rob Katz, chairman and chief executive officer of Vail Resorts.

“We believe guests of Heavenly and Northstar will greatly appreciate the flexibility to enjoy both the north and south shores of Lake Tahoe as we introduce pass and lift tickets products that offer access to both resorts starting with this coming 2010-11 ski season.”

Northstar is host to a new base area village featuring 35 shops and restaurants in more than 100,000 square feet of commercial retail space, a conference center, a 9,000-square-foot skating rink, on-site lodging and venues for special events.

The mountain offers 19 lifts, 92 ski trails spread across 3,000 acres, snowmaking that covers 50 percent of the ski trails, seven terrain parks and snow sports including alpine and telemark skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and tubing. During the 2009-2010 ski season, Northstar-at-Tahoe saw more than 700,000 skier visits.

Last season, The Ritz-Carlton Highlands, Lake Tahoe was unveiled at mid-mountain featuring ski-in, ski-out access; mountain valet services; Manzanita, the resort's signature restaurant created by renowned San Francisco celebrity chef Traci Des Jardins; and a 17,000-square-foot spa and fitness center.

The year-round resort property includes 170 guest rooms, 23 private Ritz-Carlton Residences and 25 Ritz-Carlton Club fractional ownership units. The resort installed and operates the new Highlands Gondola with eight-passenger cabins, providing a direct connection between the Village at Northstar and The Ritz-Carlton Highlands, Lake Tahoe.

Booth Creek's George Gillett, chief executive officer, Chris Ryman, president and chief operating officer, and Betsy Cole, executive vice president and chief financial will no longer have management positions at Northstar-at-Tahoe.

Vail Resorts announced that Julie Maurer, vice president of marketing and sales at Booth Creek. will immediately become a vice president of marketing with Vail Resorts, overseeing the marketing and sales of both Heavenly Mountain Resort and Northstar-at-Tahoe Resort.

Vail Resorts announced that it will begin an immediate search for a new general manager of Northstar-at-Tahoe, which will include both internal and external candidates.

“I want to thank George, the Gillett family, Chris and Betsy for their vision and leadership in bringing the Northstar-at-Tahoe Resort to world-class status over these past years,” said Katz. “We are incredibly excited to bring the entire Northstar team into the Vail Resorts family. They have all been responsible for one of the great success stories in the mountain resort industry today.”

The company also announced Northstar is being added to its eight-mountain Epic Pass for the coming season and Colorado Pass holders will also get five days of skiing at Heavenly and Northstar.
