In late December I wrote a column on how Park City may have made a big mistake by letting Vail use the term Park City for their ski resort. Since that time I’ve done research, thought more about the topic, and frankly become more upset that our community is now forever tied to a Vail ski resort name.
As a protest, and in order to provide criticism, Park Rag LLC has purchased the website www.parkcitysucks.com. As we state there, we don’t think Park City (the city) is horrible. We don’t think Park City (the resort) is bad. However, we do think Vail’s use of our city’s name, PARK CITY, for their ski resort SUCKS. In addition, we worry about the effects on local businesses who may want to incorporate the words “Park City” in their name going forward.
In the end, parkcitysucks.com simply asks Vail to reconsider what they have done, for all our sakes.
If you have a few minutes, we’d love for you to check it out.
