A recent court decision in Utah has resulted in threats by Powdr to remove lifts from leased terrain at Park City Mountain Resort. The base area and lower mountain, under control of Powdr, would be turned into a Woodward sports action camp.
Under the plan, if allowed by the courts, Powdr would relocate the lifts on leased terrain to its existing ski areas, possibly including Killington and Pico.
The court has ordered Powdr and the landowner, Talisker Land Holdings, LLC, to mediate the situation. Talisker has an existing agreement with Vail Resorts to lease its Park City holdings and potentially combine them with the duo's Canyons ski resort.
A 60 day eviction order could be executed on August 27, 2014.
