We engaged Tom Lithgow of ResortLogic as an advisor and analyst for the sale of our company. Due to his understanding of our industry, he could provide specific valuation for us, and he was critical in guiding us through the sales transaction to a successful conclusion. Tom's industry knowledge was invaluable to White Pass, yet his professionalism and honesty generated trust between the two parties, thus creating a seamless and satisfying transaction for all."
Kevin McCarthy, GM, White Pass Ski Co., Inc.
“Tom was a pleasure to work with – professional, efficient, and thorough. He knew the right questions to ask, listened to and learned every detail specific to our business, and provided valuable information that led to an outcome that all parties were extremely satisfied with. He was able to move quickly without sacrificing attention to detail and was extremely responsive. After our seamless experience, we can confidently recommend ResortLogic’s services to anyone in our industry.”

Succession |Transition |Transaction Guidance
The ownership of your resort is not forever. At some point, there will be need or opportunity to hand the keys to the next entrepreneur, whether from within the family, to a group of friendly long-time stakeholders intent on perpetuating the resort identity, an outside entity, or that “out of the blue” qualified buyer.
A significant portion of ResortLogic’s project volume is now as the anchor advisor to Succession Planning and Transitions. There are many elements around this process, but once the commitment is made to move forward, it starts with the value of the resort. With decades of ski resort appraisal and acquisition underwriting experience, we provide you with a solid valuation basis from which to strategize negotiations.
ResortLogic will stay with you through the transaction. We’ve lived through many of the “angles” and torpedoes that evolve in the months to closing a deal. With a decade of acquisition experience, we have the foresight to straighten and intercept those obstacles.
Your resort assets will not last forever. You are now focused on creating a capital maintenance plan for your primary assets and infrastructure. The picture of “returns” and appropriate sequencing are unclear. ResortLogic is now regularly developing comprehensive multi-year capital plans inclusive of “ROI” analyses, payback-periods, sequencing strategies, etc.
Our asset management experience involved the planning and implementation of over $400 million in capital projects, all of which defended with case memoranda. We have the economic and workflow modeling that will bring structure and discipline to the deployment of your money, regardless of the source.
