There have been rumors swirling about Vail Resorts eyeing Stowe Mountain Resort. Now it's official. The behemoth Vail Resorts will purchase the historic ski resort in Stowe, Vermont, for $50 million. This will be Vail Resorts' first resort in the Northeast.

Here are some of the first news reports, and a link to the press release from Colorado:

You may have heard of the Epic Pass, which is valid at all Vail resorts. Here's what VR says about that: 

"Vail Resorts looks forward to integrating Stowe Mountain Resort into its Epic Pass and other season pass products for the 2017-18 winter season, subject to the acquisition closing. With the Epic Pass, Vermont skiers and snowboarders will have unlimited access locally at Stowe at an attractive price as well as the best of the West at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Keystone in Colorado; Park City in Utah; Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood in Tahoe; and Whistler Blackcomb in British Columbia, Canada."

QUESTION: How do you think this will impact Stowe and your experience skiing there?
