Judge Issues Eviction Order for PCMR

A judge has signed an order that clears the way for Park City Mountain Resort to be evicted from the mountain.

At the end of a hearing over the eviction issue in Silver Summit’s 3rd District Court today, Judge Ryan Harris granted a requested by Talisker Holdings to evict PCMR. The judge however halted enforcement of that order until August 27 and ordered both sides to go into mediation.

In a ruling last month, Judge Harris declared PCMR missed a key deadline to renew its lease on the mountain. At today's hearing, Talisker, which is the landlord over the mountain, urged the judge to sign the eviction order.

Evicting Park City Mountain Resort will be difficult and costly if PCMR carry out their plans to dismantle equipment on the mountain.
