Court ruling could give Vail Resorts control over both PCMR and Canyons. Powdr Corp. vows to continue to battle.
Park City Mountain Resort could be forced to cease operations following a Wednesday court ruling. Or Vail Resorts could be running the Utah resort. Or it could be somewhere in between. The future is that unclear.
Plans: Zip lines, ropes course, climbing wall, mountain coaster and more.
Poor Vail Mountain. It’s so boring in the summer. All there is to do is ride the gondola, hike the dozens of trails winding across the slopes, ogle the beautiful landscape, fly downhill on a full-suspension mountain bike, look for wildlife, play disc golf, go on a summit-top jeep tour. Etc. Plus dining. And shopping. And bar-hopping. Yes, so dull.
Even the recession has a silver lining: cheap skiing. Many—perhaps most—resorts nationwide are offering rock-bottom deals on next season’s ski passes. From Vail, Colo., to Waterville Valley, N.H., pass prices for the 2010/11 season are often at an all-time low if purchased before the lfits close. Here are a few examples, but contact your own favorite resorts for the latest deals as ski areas offer incentives and perks to motivate you to purchase next season's passes this season.
