Pretty wide range of scenarios being considered.
According to the [Facebook] post, three sale scenarios are being explored:
"1. We have a buyer negotiating to buy the resort and install a quad lift this season.
"2. We have a buyer negotiating to buy the resort; remain closed for the ski season and install a lift next summer.
"3. We have two potential buyers looking at operating status quo for the winter. Improvements would begin next summer. "
In addition, a potential lease is being explored to continue operations in 2015-16. Possible interested parties in a lease could include the homeowners associations and the Saddleback Ski Club.
Install a quad lift this season? I admittedly know diddly-squat about chairlift installation, but it would seem to be awfully late in the year to be floating that as an option. I guess they would have to plan on reusing the existing towers, but still... seems like an awful lot of work.
