Confirmation of Summit Series Interest in Purchasing Powder Mountain
We reported in this blog last month (March 10) that a number of business blogs were reporting that the Summit Series was pursuing a possible purchase of Powder Mountain. In a recent article in the Standard Examiner, Ogden, Utah’s daily newspaper, Patrick Lunden, marketing manager for Powder Mountain, confirmed that a “California company is exploring the possible purchase of Powder Mountain. They are looking at the mountain and doing their due dilligence. There will be an official press release once the deal is done.” Lunden identified the company as Summit Series, based in Malibu.
Summit Series, founded by Elliott Bisnow in 2009, states on one of Bisnow’s business blogs (Bisnow Media) that Summit Series hosts “invitation-only events that connect and inspire a new generation of leaders to succeed in business and in life.”
The Standard Examiner goes on to report that “Past Summit Series events have drawn numerous celebrities, including former President Bill Clinton, Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, and Craig Newmark, founder of Craigslist.
