This thread became official mouthpiece of Powdr bashing and MTN cheerleading. And allowing Mr. Cumming to be called very offensive names. And platform for baseless allegations. And the example of "repeat the lie until it becomes truth" propaganda.
Powdr did make a business mistake that they will pay for in the marketplace, as they should.
It was fun reading it when ratio was close to 15:1 in favor of Vail, at least some balanced information could be harvested from it.
Now it is all Vail is great, Powdr sucks, Vail is genius, "Cummings" is incompetent (he's been called much worse names here in this thread), Vail is rich and will get richer after Powdr pays them $100M, Powdr is holding town hostage, "scorched earth", "pitchforks", etc.
It is getting old checking in on this thread and not seeing anything new but more of the same.
Increasingly this feels more like PR/viral campaign than reasonable and substantial discussion that could offer any insight into this matter.
I think it is easy to pick on the party that made such a monumental error based on simple paperwork.
Regarding Vail, I don't think they are geniuses, but they clearly look like winners. Had this case gone the other way, they would have looked like the idiots paying $50m for an underperforming resort, now they have have another Vail in the making.
For those cheerleading and ecstatic to welcome Vail as owning 2/3rds of Park City, be careful what you wish for...
