Why AIG Is Selling Stowe Ski Operations

Updated on

American International Group Inc., the insurer that’s been divesting assets to narrow its focus, agreed to sell ski operations at Vermont’s Stowe Mountain to Vail Resorts Inc.

AIG will retain majority ownership of the base area, which includes a 312-room lodge, along with a country club and future development rights, according to statements Tuesday from the companies. The Broomfield, Colorado-based buyer gains a foothold in the U.S. East Coast to complement locations in its home state, Utah and California.
