Park City’s Ski Patrol Association continues negotiations with Vail Resorts after agreement expires

PARK CITY, Utah – The Collective Bargaining Agreement between Vail Resorts and the Park City Professional Ski Patrol Association (PCPSPA) expired on April 30.

The two sides began meeting at the beginning of April to negotiate a new collective bargaining agreement, according to the Park City association.

“Meetings have been productive, with positive back and forth discussions between the sides and the exchange of multiple proposals and counterproposals. Despite progress made over the past month, significant work remains before an agreement is reached,” PCPSPA said in a statement.

The two sides discussed a possible contract extension. The duration of an extension could not be agreed upon and the contract expired. Both sides will continue to negotiate in the coming weeks and months with the goal of reaching an agreement before the start of the next season.

The expiration will not impact summer operations as trail crew and bike patrol are not governed by the patrol union contract.

“We care deeply about all of our employees, and as a resort and company, we are continuously improving the employee experience. Regardless of whether our employees are in a union or not, we are guided by the belief that all of our teammates are important and should be treated fairly. We have a strong track record of investing in our employees and are proud of the wages and benefits we provide to those who work for our resort. We are committed to bargaining in good faith with the representatives selected by our patrollers toward a new contract,” Sara Huey, senior manager of communications for Park City Mountain said.
