Park City Mountain Resort gains advantage in eviction fight

SALT LAKE CITY — Park City Mountain Resort is claiming an upper hand in the lease dispute that threatened to evict it from much of its 3,700 acres of ski terrain.

A judge says the ski area can argue it had the right to buy land that Vail Resorts Inc. is trying to remove it from.

Vail has taken over Canyons ski resort outside Park City and with it, a lease on much of the land at Park City Mountain Resort.

Vail argues Park City Mountain Resort missed a deadline to renew the lease.

The case is expected to go to trial next year. It began in March 2012 when owners of Park City Mountain Resort sought a court declaration that they have lease-renewal rights and can’t be evicted.
