Vail Resorts Moves Forward with Interconnect Park City & Canyons - Page 8

post #211 of 216

Not even close to what was suggested in the previous post.  See: http://www.parkrecord.com/ci_28459377/3-2-vote-county-stays-accord

 

This is all contentious, and has a long way to go.  There are many studies to be done first. The county simply wants a say in any future deal.

 

The other issue is correctly described here and not in the previous post : http://www.heraldextra.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/commissioners-ask-mountain-accord-to-delete-county-inclusion-in-land/article_82a36595-96ca-52c0-a017-661766bd3d58.html

 

All of this has a long way to go before anything happens or doesn't happen.

This is more of a fluff piece than good financial reporting (hey, it is the Park Record), but it shows the impact of Park City/Canyons on the Vail Resorts Q3 during a horrible snow year: http://www.parkrecord.com/business/ci_28390797/park-city-propels-vail-resorts-to-strong-third-quarter. It seems Katz did not overpay...not even close.

Judging by the number of CA and NV plates in the parking lots when I visited post gathering I'd have a fair guess as to where a lot of those skiers came from.

Yeah, and from east of the Continental Divide, too.  Many skiers from the east know great skiing exists in CO, but still think UT exists in some other universe. The Olympics changed some of that perception, and Vail's Epic Pass will change it even more.

 

The drive from the Bay area is at least 11 hours without breaks, and around 7 hours from Reno.  For those with an Epic Pass, it is close enough. I imagine the PCMR (combined resorts) skier days will greatly increase in off-peak times if we ever get a decent snow year.

Mountain Accord is moving along, anticipating an increase in tourism over the next few decades by allowing development (for land swaps) in the Cottonwoods: http://www.parkrecord.com/ci_28483580/mountain-accord-plan-including-controls-development-wins-approval

 

One Wasatch is still very much alive: http://www.parkrecord.com/ci_28483580/mountain-accord-plan-including-controls-development-wins-approval?source=JBarTicker

 

Good politics is about compromise, and this is what we are now seeing.
