The new owner of Killington ski resort says it has no legal obligation to honor more than a thousand lifetime ski passes issued by a previous owner.
Killington/Pico Ski Resort Partners LLC, which is being sued by a group of pass holders who want the passes honored, says they were only valid while the Sherburne Corporation – Killington’s original owner – continued to operate the resort.
The new owner says it doesn’t intend to agree to further concessions for which it has no legal obligation. The company has who given pass holders a two-year grace period to continue to ski for free.
A lawyer representing the pass holders said the resort is choosing to define lifetime to its own liking.
