James R. St. Jean Auctioneers has cancelled its July 8 auction of Granite Gorge and the small southern New Hampshire area is now looking forward to next season.
Hampshire First Bank triggered the power of sale clause in its mortgage this spring, scheduling an auction of the 146 acre ski area and its 3,839 square foot lodge. Granite Gorge responded with a statement that "There will be no auction of the property as the NBT bank loan terms are being satisfied."
In a Facebook post yesterday, Granite Gorge announced, "Foreclosure canceled, no auction. To celebrate, take advantage of this great Family Tubing Season Pass Deal!"
Located on Route 9 east of Keene, Granite Gorge was opened on the site of the defunct Pinnacle ski area in 2003. A refurbished Borvig double chairlift was installed for the 2005-06 season. 2018-19 operations were scaled back to tubing and surface lift skiing.
