Scotty Arnold, former Park City local?
On Septmeber 9th, 2015, a judge, (who probably would have gotten to it sooner if he wasn’t so busy with listening to skiers and snowboarders argue about the basic human right to ski and snowboard) told PCMR it would have to pay $17.5 million if it wanted to operate this season. In the first reasonable move since its battle with Talisker began some three years ago, PCMR paid up almost immediately.
This news comes as a releif to the Park City locals, who use the nearly $185 million generated by the resort and tourism to pay their bills. Of course, that money has to come from somewhere, so shortly after the check cleared, our sources tell us Park City decided to raised its ticket prices to $850 per day. The call came down directly from Powdr corp CEO John Cumming, who cited the fact that everyone in the world who still skis must be at least as rich as he is so no one would even notice the extra $789. “I wipe my ass with $789,” he said.
As for the future of Park City Mountain Resort, Yobeat analyists predict that prices will continue to rise and likely reach the $1000 per day mark by 2018. In response to the news, long-time Park City local snowboarder Scotty “S-C-O-Dubs” has announced that he will be switching the skiing in order visit the much more affordable Deer Valley Resort up the street. “It’s closer to my house anyway, dude.”
