Sununu is currently negotiating a deal to sell the mountain.

I miss Diamond's Edge and other former decent restaurants in the valley. And, based on some personal experience, I would not lay out $$ for a lift ticket this early. Should the LLC be put into bankruptcy (7 or 11) you become an unsecured creditor and you might as well throw the money into the lu.

Fact or rumor?

Fact. Sununu hasn't put a dime towards improving the resort. The old timers were brought back to help facilitate the permits for Green Peak. Now that most of the leg work is done all those guys were let go and the mountain now has a higher re-sale value with potential for expansion. It's all about money.

The representation was made, and great fanfare was sounded, that the ski area was once again in local hands and investment would be made. The public supported and pushed for the expansion. It is disingenuous for the owners to pull out now and resell the property so quickly, due to it increased value.

Sounds like something a politician would due, line his own pockets by misleading the public. I guess SPM is not the only ones pulling the wool over our eyes!

The worst part is the treatment of the employees at the mountain. The lack of morale, energy and leadership is more than obvious.

This is great news for me! I will now reconsider buying a season pass for 2013/14. Our family took a break for 2012/13 season after 30+ years of being season pass holders due to this bad management team.

Looks like Waterville isn't very high on Sununu's priority list..

As long as WV keeps recycling the same old rejects that no one else wants nothing will ever change....Anyone who has ever purchased the mountain in the last 25 years has basically kept the same people in place and gone belly up...So what does Sununu do when he purchased the mountain...Recycle... Wake up...Get some new blood in there...It can't get any worse...

The Lantern is closed ! Restaurant was doomed from start because Wv senior management lack restaurant experience and always over estimate attendance at resort. When few people are at WV mid week, who is eating at linen table cloth restaurant? Bring in Five Guys!!

Heard it was only closed for the rest of the "off season" - will re-open Thanksgiving/Christmas timeframe....

Restaurant is closed permanently, not a temporary action. Restaurants don't reopen for Thanksgiving/Christmas and shut down in March unless you run a cafeteria line at a ski resort. The abysmal pedestrian volume at Town Square will not allow for a successful white linen restaurant .

I am told by cashiers at one of the Town Center businesses that traffic has been down each of the last two summers. 2012 down 20%, 2013 down more.

We were surprised to see it all lit up when we arrived at the Valley last Friday night. The Lantern was open over Columbus weekend; they had what read like an upscale buffet posted on the boards outside the entrance for both Friday evening and Sunday evening; can't speak to its success or quality but were somewhat encouraged to see that something was going on.

The Lantern disappoints again! Patrons walk out because of long waits and poor service. Food mediocre and two cooks quit! White linen restaurant operated by WV management will close again leaving poor reputation intact! Let's hear more tales of woe from Christmas vacation week.

Bright lights, big disappointment...does no one know how to use a dimmer ??

Running out of prepped food by 7:15 on a Saturday night, having to cancel 80 reservations, including, it's rumored, the elder Mr. Sununnu, Indifferent staff, bartender attitude bordering on rudeness, SORRY, out of toilet paper !!

Just a few of the comments swirling the Valley
