The operators of Mammoth Mountain have signed a $38 million deal to acquire the company that runs Bear Mountain and Snow Summit in the San Bernardino Mountains, the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday.

There is no other place in the world that has an excellent economic growth engine with such easy access to the great outdoors. Over the last 40 years I have watched as ski resorts and associated development expanded their boundaries and took away pristine backcountry terrain. My various crews of ski buddies have certainly enjoyed the access to new terrain...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

To anyone who has followed the ski industry in the American West, Vail Resorts’ purchase of Park City Mountain Resort is the marriage of ’60s children. Stretch pants and cable bindings were de rigueur when Vail opened in 1962 and Park City in 1963, and both featured enclosed gondolas to carry skiers. That was a more upscale experience than the chairlifts at Alta and As...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The announcement Thursday came after three years of litigation between PCMR and its landlord, Talisker Land Holdings, Inc., that also leases nearby Canyons Resort to Vail. Powdr Corp. had operated PCMR for two decades but missed by several days a 20-year lease renewal deadline of April 30, 2011, on 2,852 acres of ski terrain. Fearing eviction, PCMR filed suit against Talisker later th...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

Certainly each corporate entity has their points and reasons for the standoff. And I am absolutely certain I am not privy to all the minute details that cause/caused this.
