Vail Resorts is acquiring two more East Coast ski mountains: Okemo Mountain Resort in Vermont and Mount Sunapee Resort in New Hampshire.

The company is set to pay $82 million to buy Triple Peaks, LLC, the parent company of Okemo and Mount Sunapee. The deal also includes Crested Butte Mountain Resort in Colorado.

In a separate deal, also announced on Monday, Vail is buying Stevens Pass Resort in Washington state for $67 million.
