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.
As we've reported, in a major omnibus ruling issued Wednesday, Third District Judge Ryan Harris ruled on nine motions in the lease dispute between Park City Mountain Resort and Talisker/Vail.
On virtually all issues, Judge Harris ruled in favor of Talisker Land Holdings, Vail Resorts, and their affiliates. In his 82-page opinion, the Judge laid down the history of the dipute, and the reasoning behind his decisions. Rick Brough has more.
Vail Resorts Wednesday won its Third District Court lawsuit against Park City Mountain Resort, which contended that PCMR failed to renew its lease on ski lands at the resort. The ruling on nine motions in the three-year old-case all favored Vail’s positions that PCMR’s lease is now expired. Vail has already served an eviction notice to PCMR, which has ignored the eviction.
Despite the ongoing lease dispute between PCMR and Vail/Talisker, city leaders say plans for a parking structure, enhanced transit, and greater connection between the resort and Lower Park Avenue area will move forward. Lynn Ware Peek has more.

Park City Mayor Jack Thomas says he's hopeful the battle between Park City Mountain Resort and Vail/Talisker will be resolved, and the city stands ready to weather the storm if a settlement threatens Park City's tax base. Lynn Ware Peek has more.
