Park City, Utah, is home to one of the most popular ski resorts in the country: Park City Mountain Resort. But the future of that mountain, and the 2014-2015 ski season, is now up in the air because of a protracted legal battle over the rights to the slopes.

After the longtime operators of the resort were late renewing their lease several years ago, the landowner signed a different lease for the mountain with Vail Resorts. But Powdr still owns the lifts, snow-making machines, base area of the mountain, parking lots and the water rights to the mountain.

Here & Now talked with the CEOs on both sides.

John Cumming, CEO of Powdr Corporation:

"I have a moral and ethical obligation to get this resolved in a fair way, but I have no moral and ethical obligation to be taken advantage of."

Rob Katz, CEO of Vail Resorts:

"I think there’s a number of ways the companies can come together to ensure the upcoming ski season and every ski season thereafter has no impact to the guest."
