• Vail Resorts and Whistler Blackcomb Complete Combination

     
    POSTED November 8, 2016
     

Vail Resorts, Inc. has completed its combination with Whistler Blackcomb Holdings, Inc. As a result, Vail Resorts receives 100 percent of Whistler Blackcomb’s stock whose shareholders in turn will receive $17.50 and 0.09 shares of Vail’s stock for each Whistler Blackcomb share they hold. This makes Vail Resorts the sole owner of Whistler Blackcomb.

Vail Resorts also has appointed Michele Romanow to the board of directors at Vail Resorts. Romanow was previously on Whistler Blackcomb’s board.

The common shares of Whistler Blackcomb were removed from the Toronto Stock Exchange on Oct. 17.

“Our mission at Vail Resorts is to deliver an experience of a lifetime to our guests and our employees, and this transaction is a significant milestone in making that experience even more special,” says Rob Katz, chairman and chief executive officer of Vail Resorts. “Whistler Blackcomb is one of the most iconic mountain resorts in the world and we are tremendously excited to welcome the resort and the talented team who work there to the Vail Resorts family.”

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.
