Monday, PCMR and Talisker/Vail looked to be worlds apart in negotiating a non-refundable bond that would allow PCMR to operate the ski resort until litigation is exhausted. According to court filings filed Friday by PCMR, fair market lease rate is somewhere between $226,650 and $1 million per year.

But an announcement by attorneys for the companies wasn’t all bad. They informed 3rd District Judge Ryan Harris they would like to continue mediation negotiations until Aug. 24. For decades, Talisker had leased 2,800 acres of ski terrain to PCMR. But the entities landed in court after PCMR failed to meet a...</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.

In a public statement, the mayor scolded both sides for not reaching an agreement that would keep PCMR open for the 2014-15 ski season and the foreseeable future.

The idea is to allow the owner of PCMR to post a bond to cover costs incurred by Talisker Corp., which is PCMR’s landlord for 2,800 acres of its ski terrain.  This situation was created after PCMR’s owner, Powdr Corp., made one of the most monumental blunders in Utah business history, faili...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Talisker Corp., which owns the ski terrain at PCMR and the neighboring Canyons Resort, stated in papers filed in 3rd District Court it would not oppose PCMR’s motion to stay an eviction from the land on one condition: PCMR posts a bond that will most likely be in the millions of dollars.
