Mount Snow resort wins $2M verdict

Posted: Updated:
BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - A federal jury in Vermont has ordered the promoter of a major winter sports event to pay Mount Snow more than $2 million, agreeing that a contract was breached when a tour stop was moved from the ski resort to Killington in 2010.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports the jury on Tuesday found against The Alliance of Action Sports, NBC Universal media and MBC Sports Venture regarding the Winter Dew Tour.

In 2012, Mount Snow filed a federal lawsuit saying the promoters breached the contract, costing the resort more than $3 million in damages related to the media value of hosting the tour stop.

Tour organizers said the contract "was never fully executed and is not enforceable."

The event focuses on winter extreme sports, such as snowboarding and freestyle skiing.
