PARK CITY -- A lease dispute between two Park City ski areas escalated this week with one resort serving an eviction notice on the other.
Park City Mountain Resort is supposed to vacate its ski area - and leave chair lifts and lodges behind - by Monday. PCMR says it's not going anywhere.
The eviction notice was served Wednesday by a subsidiary of resort operator Talisker Corp., which owns much of the land at Park City Mountain Resort.
Until recently, Talisker operated the nearby Canyons ski area. A few months ago, it announced it was selling rights to Canyons to Vail Resorts Inc., a Colorado-based company that is continuing the fight with Park City Mountain Resort.
A Talisker lawyer, John Lund, told The Associated Press that nobody will try to evict Park City Mountain Resort by force Monday, and that the eviction notice is the first step in a legal process.
