    I believe the issue is not as simple as you stated. It will be interesting to see what materializes in court.

    I hope that Powdr Corp. can maintain control of the land. The owners are local and approachable.

    Isn't it the land owners right and prerogative to control and decide if they want to lease their property? The resort was forewarned of a non renewal so any money they spent is their own risk and own loss. All they can do is remove or abandon what they leave on the land. The resort should look for a new location to invest in.

    The resort developers knew their risk, now they have to live with it and at their own expense. Only they can be held accountable for their losses.

    Even the BLM leases are temporary and can be canceled at the end of the lease. The risk is all done by developers and the land owners are not at fault or obligated to care about the lessee or his property and money investments.

    The land owner just has to give the leaser time to remove his property over a specified period of time, like 6 months or it will be sold as abandoned scrap. The courts should back the land owner on this issue, too many company's try to intimidate and force to get their way. It's time they learn the rule of law property owners have.
