As Ski season comes around the corner, a lawsuit has been placed against Intermountain Management, the company that owns and operates Song Mountain, by NY Attorney General Letitia James.
The Lawsuit alleges that Intermountain Management bought Toggenburg Mountain for the sole purpose of shutting the facility down, and in effect reducing their competition.
Previously owned by John Meir, owner of Greek Peak Mountain Resorts, the sale of Toggenburg Mountain for $2.25 million was completed in August 2021. The resort was closed in the same month. At the time of closing, Peter Harris, President of Intermountain Management, stated that a number of hurdles led to Toggenburg’s closing, including labor and business shortages.
John Meir’s name also appeared in the lawsuit. During the purchase of Toggenburg Mountain, Meirs had agreed to an illegal noncompete agreement made by Intermountain Management, that for 5 years Meirs wouldn’t compete with any Intermountain ski resort, namely Labrador and Song Mountains. Meirs has already agreed to pay back the $195,000 that he was given as part of the noncompete.
Lastly, the lawsuit requires Intermountain Management to sell one of their resorts.
This lawsuit is currently ongoing and we’ll have updates as they are announced.
