For the second time in recent months, the judge presiding over Park City's ski resort court battle has reviewed internal documents from Park City Mountain Resort, and determined they are priviledged and confidential. That mean they can't be disclosed to attorneys for Talisker.
In the meantime, though, Talisker has made a different request for records from Park City Mountain. The issue will be argued before the court Monday morning. Rick Brough has more.
In spite of the millions of dollars poured into marketing the Park City ski experience, the world really starting taking Utah serious when it began hosting World Cup ski races. The first one was in March of 1985.
The worldwide television coverage - better than any two page spread in a ski magazine could do - showed off Utah's snow and scenery, eventually landing the state the 2002 Olympics. Much of that success can be attributed to Craig Badami – or CB – who was hell bent on bringing the World Cup to town.
As we've reported, a court fight the last year and a half has focused on whether the Park City Mountain Resort has a continued valid lease of 3700 acres of its ski mountain. In the meantime, the Mountain Resort has continued to use the ski terrain, while rent payments to the landlord, Talisker, have been refused. In its recent court filing, Talisker gave some further details about the rent dispute. Rick Brough has more.
