    I used to think the folks that ran these big companies were a lot smarter than me. But as the years go by and I see some of the stuff that goes on, I mean forgetting the lease was going to run out? I now think I was being hard on myself.

    As a teenager, I used to go skiing often in the winter with a friend who went every week. This involved getting on a UTA bus for a 1 1/2 hour ride one way. Renting skis and buying a pass. Then getting in a line to ride the ski lift. Then spending time on the lift, then a quick ride down the slope. After a few times down the hill, I'd return the rental skis and take the 1 1/2 hour bus ride home. Very little time was spend skiing compared to all the other time I had to spend to be able to do it. Finally I got tired of it, it wasn't worth it anymore. I haven't been skiing in years.

    Lot's of talk, but few facts. How much is Talisker asking and how much is PCMR willing to pay? I sincerely doubt that PCMR understands the term 'fair market value', it is beyond their level of reality. It will be interesting to see what the judge as to say later this month.

    "Skiing is a dieing (sic) sport and economically too expensive for the public at large to pay the fees and costs in a recession and depression."

    You're entitled to your own opinion but you're not entitled to your own facts. The ski industry in North America has set an all-time record 4 years in a row in terms of total revenue.

    This is an illegal breach of the property owners rights and have no jurisdiction to negotiate or prevent the land owner from his rights. The lease was up and the city and courts have no jurisdiction in land use. If I was the land owner I'd serve them with another eviction notice for next year and if not vacated remove all the buildings and equipment and sell it all for scrap for cost incurred.

    Skiing is a dieing sport and economically too expensive for the public at large to pay the fees and costs in a recession and depression.

    With the courts setting the fees the skiers will have to pay higher lift costs and food costs and parking costs. The economy of any business cannot afford the 15% inflation during the states recovery collapse.
