The first opposition to Vail's application to trademark the name "Park City" has been filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.  KPCW's Renai Bodley has the story:

Update:  From Kristin Williams, Vail VP, Mountain Community Affairs:  "We are aware of the opposition filed by Park City Powder Cats & Heli-Ski.  We have had friendly discussions with the owner already and are optimistic we can reach an agreement that addresses their concerns."  

Now that Vail Resorts has announced it's planning a skier connection from Canyons Resort to the Park City Mountain Resort, a lot of people are wondering what legal process the plan has to go through.

Deputy County Attorney Jamie Bracken shed some light on that - saying that the Specially-Planned Area approval for Canyons doesn't have to be re-opened. Rick Brough has more.

A group of long-time business owners and former government officials met last week with the owners of Park City Mountain Resort and Vail Resorts to see if they could ensure that the resort opens this winter. KPCW's Leslie Thatcher reports.

With just days before a crucial court hearing, the Park City Mountain Resort is arguing that if the Third District Court authorizes an eviction from the ski mountain they've been using, it will be an injustice not only to them, but to many third parties that depend on the resort for economic survival.

In the next couple of weeks, Third District Judge Ryan Harris is considering a large quantity of claims, allegations and legal arguments from both sides in the Park City Mountain Resort ski hill lawsuit.

In the past two weeks, the Judge heard oral arguments on three major disputes. Last week, the Mountain Resort - which had said it still has a valid lease of over 3,000 acres of its ski hill - said its lease was violated because the landlord, Talisker Land Holdings, in effect, sold the property to Vail Resorts.
