Vail

Vail just got bigger.  Today the company announced it has acquired another ski resort.  And that makes the Epic Pass much more appealing to the Midwest market.  KPCW's Renai Bodley explains:

It was a close vote.  Initial results show Park City ski patrollers will  join a union.  

Below is an excerpt from an email sent to Park City ski patrollers Monday evening:

"Today, you were given an opportunity to vote on whether or not the Park City Ski Patrol Team would be represented by the Communications Workers of America (CWA). Preliminary results show that employees voted 97 to 94 for representation. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has a process to officially certify the results. As soon as the process is complete, we will let you know."

Park City Municipal has sent a follow up correspondence to the CEO's of Vail Resorts and Powdr Corp, expressing support for a "broader resolution" to their legal dispute which would include an operational plan for the resort to remain open for the upcoming ski season. Lynn Ware Peek has more.

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.

The town of Vail, Colorado had representatives in town last week, for several days of collaboration, brainstorming, and sharing information on how similar mountain resort communities operate. Lynn Ware Peek has more.
