If all goes as planned, Los Alamos will have another lodging option before the end of the year.
The new owners of Hilltop House have plans to renovate the property and reopen it.
The hotel was purchased by Atomic City Investments, a subsidiary of Texas Capital Partners. The partnership also owns Sipapu Ski Resort, Purgatory Ski Resort in Durango, Colo., and is working on purchasing Arizona Snowbowl in Flagstaff, Arizona.
“We believe this investment in that city will bring a strong synergy, particularly with our linking of Durango, Snowbowl and Sipapu,” said Kuzi Mutsiwegota, one of TCP’s partners.
“We just feel that we’re going to have a seasonal pass product that will allow people to come visit Los Alamos more, and having some lodging was pretty important to us.”
Mutsiwegota acknowledge that the hotel is in need of significant work.
“We need to work through some of the code requirements and assess some of those realities as far as getting it open.” Mutsiwegota said. “But we anticipate that it will be operating at some point before ski season.”
