Park City Mountain Resort
Two neighboring Utah ski resorts owned by Vail Resorts and being combined into one mega resort will be known simply by the name of the mountain city where it is located: “Park City.”
Skiers and snowboarders traveling to Utah this winter will find the same jagged mounting peaks looming just east of Salt Lake City and many familiar trails at the state’s 15 resorts. But they may also notice a few signs of the significant changes that occurred in the offseason.
A Colorado ski resort says Salt Lake City can’t market itself as Ski City USA because the winter sports slogan is too similar to their decades-old nickname for Steamboat Springs.
One of Utah’s largest ski areas will be sold to Vail Resorts Inc., resolving a legal battle between two ski titans and paving the way for the creation of what could be the country’s largest resort.
It’s a battle of ski resort titans that could bring a hostile takeover at Park City Mountain Resort.
Vail Resorts said Wednesday it will take over operations of Canyons ski resort in Utah under a lease agreement with Canadian resort operator Talisker Corp.
