Vail Offers to buy Park City Mountain Resort

Vail Resorts, on Tuesday, offered to buy assets of Park City Mountain Resort in a move to resolve a current legal battle between Park City Mountain Resort and neighbor resort and Vail operated, Canyons Ski Resort. The offer was made in a letter Vail CEO Rob Katz sent to John Cumming, CEO Powdr Corp., in response to Cumming’s comments in the Park City, Utah’s publication the Park Record last week accusing Vail of never making a “serious proposal to settle the land-use suit.” The mentioned lawsuit involves whether PowdrCorp. failed to renew the long-term lease of land with the Talisker Corporation who owns the Canyons Resort as well as the 2800 acres of terrain that makes up most of Park City Mountain Resort.

Ski Utah ONE Wasatch Ski Resort Interconnection announced today

Ski Utah and ski resort representatives today announced a concept to connect the seven Central Wasatch Mountain ski resorts via chairlifts and ski runs called ONE Wasatch. Unlike the previously proposed transportation interconnections between ski resorts, ONE Wasatch would be an over the snow concept requiring you to use the mountain resorts and ski lifts, experiencing the different terrain and resort designs. Utah’s central Wasatch Mountains are home to seven world-class mountain resorts in close proximity to one another. Connecting these resorts over-the-snow via chairlift and ski run would provide a skiing and riding experience unrivaled anywhere in North America. The coupling of these seven distinct resort personalities would allow access to over 18,000 skiable acres, 100 lifts and more that 750 runs and all on one lift ticket, all on the “Greatest Snow on Earth.” “We do not have all of the answers at the moment as this is still a concept,” said Nathan Rafferty, President and CEO of Ski Utah.

After an avalanche forced a change in the competition venue at Snowbird, the Swatch Freeride World Tour needed the full weather windown to host the competition. The wait paid off with the event running under a clear blue sky and fresh snow.
"Snowbird is such a great resort and for Mother Nature to give us fresh snow and a bluebird day, you couldn't ask for a better day to have a competition," said Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, competition wild card and local Snowbird rider.
