PCMR Has One Chance Left In Lawsuit

Park City Mountain Resort had little good news Wednesday from Third District Judge Ryan Harris, who ruled against the Resort on virtually every claim and massive opinion.

He did leave one claim partially intact, however, saying the Resort can continue to litigate there.

The Resort says it suffered financial damages relating to the lease it held on the ski mountain owned by Talisker. Although the Resort missed a deadline to renew the lease in April 2011, Talisker didn't give notice for eight months that it considered the lease to be expired. Rick Brough has more.

Cumming Responds To Katz's Public Letters

John Cumming, the CEO of Powdr Corporation, parent company of the Park City Mountain Resort, is scolding his counterpart, Vail Chief Executive Rob Katz, in a letter relased Friday.

Cummings said that Katz has misstated the facts about their legal dispute over PCMR's ski mountain, as a transparent public relations effort to pressure Powdr into a Vail takeover of the resort.

Cumming writes that exchanging letters in public is counterproductive, but he needs to set the record straight. All he tells Katz, "If you want to resolve this dispute, call me." Rick Brough has more.
