A mountain operations building sustained damage as a fire ripped through Tuesday night. No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire and the extent of the damage were not immediately known.

The fire started early Tuesday evening, with a second alarm being called out prior to 8:30. Nine fire departments were eventually on the scene, according to the Brattleboro Reformer.

Mount Snow General Manager Erik Barnes told the Brattleboro Reformer, "We lost the carpentry shop, snowmaking controls, electrical, plumbing offices" and that "Vehicle maintenance also is going to be affected."

Located in Southern Vermont, Mount Snow is owned and operated by Peak Resorts. Tens of millions of dollars have been invested in snowmaking equipment in recent years.

UPDATE: According to Mount Snow late Wednesday morning, firefighters from 17 towns were on scene. The south end of the building was consumed. While snowmaking offices were destroyed, the actual snowmaking infrastructure was no longer located in the building.
