Park City’s new mayor Jack Thomas has deep roots in Park City. His grandparents were married here and he starting coming up to stay at his Great Aunt Mame’s house at 39 King Road in the 1950s’. As a lifelong skier, he used to ski race in high school and participated in the Knudson Cup. In this week’s Park City Story, Thomas takes a look back at his last ski race he competed in.
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.
