The lead attorney for Park City Mountain Resort on Tuesday broached the idea that Talisker Corp.'s deal with Vail Resorts for the Colorado firm to operate Canyons Resort might have violated a lease agreement between PCMR and Talisker.

Alan Sullivan, who represents PCMR in the high-profile lawsuit against Talisker centered on the resort's lease of much of its ski terrain, mentioned the idea during a conference in 3rd District Court at Silver Summit in front of Judge Ryan Harris. Sullivan said there could have been a breach of a clause allowing PCMR the right of first refusal. He did not discuss the topic in detail, however.

The Talisker Corp.-Vail Resorts deal, announced in May, includes the possibility of Vail Resorts operating PCMR, depending on the outcome of the lawsuit. Vail Resorts assumed the lead role in the case for the Talisker side as a part of the deal.

Sullivan's mention of the possibility of a violation was one of the first major statements from the PCMR side with the prospects of drawing Vail Resorts further into the case in some fashion.
