Haystack Chairlift

Hermitage Club members are being forced to pay a $10,000 one time fee, due immediately, as a result of growing financial woes.

Located in the Deerfield Valley near Mount Snow, the club features the Haystack ski area, a golf course, and numerous inns and restaurants.

According to an article posted on VTDigger, "several properties in Dover owned or affiliated with the Hermitage are heading to tax sale."

Management hopes to raise $5 million in order to pay off its debts.

Hermitage founder Jim Barnes acquired the defunct Haystack ski area in October 2011 and soon installed two new quad chairlifts. An 80,000 square foot lodge was constructed for 2014-15 and a $7.3 million heated, high speed detachable six person chairlift for 2015-16.
