Hermitage Club president and founder Jim Barnes paid $6.5 million for the Haystack ski area and nearby golf club in 2011. The ski area had been closed for several years.

Barnes tells the Brattleboro Reformer they invested more than $8 million in snow-making equipment over the last two years.

The club's website says a family membership has an initial fee of $55,000 plus annual dues of $5,150

Barnes now says the club now has more than 200 members.
