Of course all politicians are to a greater or lesser degree so of course your latter point is equally well made.

 

Honestly, I haven't listen to 2 full sentences he's spoken. Its 2015, not 2016 and I can't stand the front-and-center attention the Presidential election is getting when its so far away.  Seriously, the 24hr news networks are ramming this down our throats..

 

Back to snow stuff...

 

I'm lobbying vail to build a lift from the base of three kings straight to hidden peak that operates at early hours and arrives just ahead of the first tram..  Im waiting for their response back, Ill keep you posted.

Since the proposed lift will access the bird, maybe John Cumming will pony up half of cost of the proposed lift to reduce the burden Vail faces on the proposed project. :rolleyes      

 

Somehow I don't think so.

Dream on, it's still morning in mountain time.

I saw the link in your post and thought, "if that's anything but Shaggy's Boombastic I'm gonna have to rain fire down onto fatbob's world."

 

You didn't disappoint. :p

Somehow I have got to believe this issue was already discussed before MTN took over PCMR.  There was nothing personal from Katz-Cumming perspective, since the fight was with Talisker. Business is indeed business.  If not in writing, there is at least a handshake on this issue.

Did Talisker paid Powdr $185 million? 

 

Trust me it is still personal. Powdr does not own the bird, the Cumming family does.

I was referring to MTN leasing from Talisker and taking over the lawsuit. The actual United Park City Mine lease, as we all know, was owned by a Talisker subsidiary. The suit would have continued whether MTN stepped in or not, because Bistricer would have simply found another partner to lease the PCMR land to (the original UPCM lease). John Cumming was going to fight until the legal options ran out or it made no economic sense to continue anyway. John Cumming could afford the battle since his dad, Ian Cumming, is worth over $7 billion (Lucadia Corp.).   MTN always wanted Canyons, but lost out to Talisker in the 2008 bidding war and was pissed about it.  Talisker put in a ton of $, did most everything right, and Vail now operates it anyway.  Bad blood? I don't think so. MTN didn't force the sale of PCMR, Talisker did. The Cumming family can't be happy about it, and I imagine they hate Bistricer and management incompetence for losing the mountain (the forgotten lease gathered dust in the desk drawer of a fired financial executive). Fortunately billionaire Dick Bass, before he died, found another good steward for Snowbird in the Cumming family.Ian had no problem writing the check. I imagine Rob Katz, Ian Cumming and John Cumming will be glad to do business together some day.  I also imagine the Cummings and Bistricer won't be having dinner anytime soon.

Not if the canyon road is closed.
