SALT LAKE CITY — A judge has ruled against a Utah ski resort in a lease dispute, forcing the resort to give up much of its 3,700 acres of ski terrain.

A 3rd District Court judge ruled Wednesday that Park City Mountain Resort missed a deadline to renew its lease on the land.

The ruling clears the way for Vail Resorts Inc. to take over the terrain. Vail already runs the nearby Canyons ski resort outside Park City.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1tlIKmF) Wednesday's decision leaves Park City Mountain Resort with only a lower portion of the mountain and base facilities.

That could hamper Vail's ability to run the rest of the terrain.

Alan Sullivan, an attorney for Park City Mountain Resort's parent company, says they will appeal the ruling.
