The Denver Post reports:

“Powdr Corp. has sold its Park City Mountain Resort to Vail Resorts for $183 million, ending a tumultuous year for Utah’s most popular ski destination.

"Selling was the last thing we wanted to do, and while we believe the law around this issue should be changed, a protracted legal battle is not in line with our core value to be good stewards of the resort communities in which we operate," Powdr CEO John Cumming said in a statement. "A sale was the only way to provide long-term certainty for PCMR employees and the Park City community. My family and I are extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to play a role in making PCMR what it is today, and we deeply appreciate the dedicated employees and all of the people who have supported us over the years."

The deal requires Vail Resorts to retain Park City Mountain Resort employees.

Powdr owned the Utah resort for more than 20 years, growing it into one of the most popular ski areas in North America.

The sale ends a legal battle that pitted Cumming’s Powdr against its landlord Talisker Land Holdings. Powdr in April 2011 was a few days late in renewing its longterm lease with Talisker for more than 2,800 acres of upper terrain at Park City Mountain Resort. That lease, which dated back to the 1970s, had the resort paying roughly $150,000 a year.

Talisker took the opportunity to oust Powdr. It leased its neighboring Canyons ski area to Vail Resorts, offering the continent’s largest resort operator the chance to run Park City Mountain Resort if it handled the legal eviction process. Vail promised Talisker $25 million a year plus a share of revenue for the 4,000-acre Canyons, with an eye toward taking over Park City Mountain Resort and creating the largest single ski area in the country.

Powdr promised a fight. Cumming said if Vail and Talisker prevailed in the eviction, he would rip his chairlifts from the upper terrain and run a smaller resort from the base area land he owned on the border of the mountain and the village of Park City.”

SALT LAKE CITY — One of Utah’s largest ski areas was sold to Vail Resorts Inc.

SALT LAKE CITY – One of Utah’s largest ski areas was sold to Vail Resorts Inc. Thursday, resolving a legal battle between two ski titans and paving the way for the creation of what could be the country’s largest resort. The $182.5 million deal, effective immediately, gives Vail the base area and parking lot at Park City Mountain Resort, as well as lifts and snowmaking equipment. The Colorado-based company is already leasing the upper 3,000 acres of slopes, but couldn’t use them without the base area owned by Powdr Corp. The sale will allow Vail to connect Park City with the adjacent Canyons ski area it leased last year from real estate company Talisker, which applauded the deal Thursday. When the two are connected with a lift in the future, the resulting 7,000-acre resort will be the largest in the country, said Vail CEO Rob Katz. “This is one of the most impactful opportunities our company has ever had,” said Katz. Vail’s stock had shot up about 11 percent by Thursday afternoon on news of the deal. For the upcoming season, Vail will operate the two resorts separately.

Ski industry » Litigation between ski Goliaths put to rest as Vail buys resort from Powdr Corp.

By Christopher Smart

 The Salt Lake Tribune

Vail Resorts has purchased Park City Mountain Resort for $182.5 million in cash, creating the country’s largest ski resort covering more than 7,000 acres.

The Colorado resort announced the acquisition Thursday morning, adding that the sale resolves all litigation with Powdr Corp., Park City Mountain Resort’s parent company.

Vail said PCMR and Canyons Resort, which it operates for Talisker Land Holdings, would be combined for the 2015-16 season. But PCMR will be added immediately to the resort’s popular Epic Pass, which offers passholders skiing opportunities at all of Vail’s resorts in the United States — plus a few ski areas overseas.

The purchase involves about 687,000 square feet of residentially and commercially owned property owned by Powdr Corp. at the resort base. It does not include Gorgoza, a tubing hill just below Parleys Summit.

Vail CEO Rob Katz said he was pleased that the sale would “bring a permanent end” to litigation between Talisker/Vail and Powdr Corp. that for months had threatened to close PCMR this winter.

That threat was put to rest Tuesday when Powdr Corp. posted a $17.5 million bond to operate the resort this coming winter while it appealed a judge’s ruling that Talisker had a right to evict PCMR from the mountain for failing to renew its lease on time in 2011.

Ending that dispute, said Vail CEO Rob Katz, will “provide assurance to the guests and employees of PCMR — and to everyone in the Park City community — that they no longer have to worry about any disruption to the operation of the resort.

"This has been a difficult period for everyone involved," he added, "and I commend John Cumming and Powdr Corp. for helping to find a solution to this situation."

Cumming said “selling was the last thing we wanted to do, and while we believe the law around this issue should be changed, a protracted legal battle is not in line with our core value to be good stewards of the resort communities in which we operate.”

He added that “a sale was the only way to provide long-term certainty for PCMR employees and the Park City community. My family and I are extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to play a role in making PCMR what it is today, and we deeply appreciate the dedicated employees and all of the people who have supported us over the years.”

The agreement, Cumming said, requires with Vail Resorts to retain PCMR employees in their current roles.
