Park City’s Autumn Aloft Hot Air Balloon Festival is returning after suddenly ending 20 years ago. It will coincide with the final weekend of the Parksilly Sunday Market September 19 through the 21st. Meisha Lawson is the spokeswoman for the festival. She says city leaders, residents and businesses are showing overwhelming support for the return of the event.
The dispute over Park City Mountain Resort’s lease of land from Talisker Land Holdings, LLC has left the boardroom and spilled into the public domain.
Vail Resorts is now representing Talisker in the dispute after signing a long-term deal to operate the Talisker owned Canyons resort. Talisker has also offered to lease the land where Park City Mountain Resort now sits to Vail if and when 3rd district court judge Ryan Harris decides that PCMR failed to renew their lease with Talisker before it expired in 2011.
A Third District Court ruling has cleared the way for two Park City ski resorts to head to trial over a disputed land lease. Their ruling, released on Tuesday, says that Park City Mountain Resort did in fact fail to renew their lease of the land owned by Talisker Corporation before it expired on April 20, 2011. While the court also dismissed several of the other actions Park City Mountain Resort brought against Talisker, it left the door open for the case to be taken to trial. Alan Sullivan, the lawyer representing Park City Mountain Resort, says that’s just what his client plans to do.
