 The man at the helm of Park City's largest employer was in town for a big party last week.  Rob Katz is the CEO of Vail Resorts and he was leading the celebration of the opening of the Quicksilver Gondola.  While he was in town, KPCW's Renai Bodley talked to him about what's next for Vail in Utah.

Park City ski patrollers voted narrowly to join a union that was originally established by the patrollers at the former Canyons Resort. Leslie Thatcher has more.

On today's program, Leslie Thatcher speaks with Summit County manager Tom Fisher, Bill Rock COO of Park City Mountain Resort and Mark O'Connor CEO of skipatrol.net talk about the close vote authorizing the Park City Ski Patrol to unionize. Recycle Utah director Insa Riepen has her monthly update and Automotive Journalists Paul Schmucker and Todd Deeken talk about the new film Pilgrimage, which has a free screening Wednesday 6:30 pm at Jim Santy Auditorium.

It was a close vote.  Initial results show Park City ski patrollers will  join a union.  

Below is an excerpt from an email sent to Park City ski patrollers Monday evening:

"Today, you were given an opportunity to vote on whether or not the Park City Ski Patrol Team would be represented by the Communications Workers of America (CWA). Preliminary results show that employees voted 97 to 94 for representation. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has a process to officially certify the results. As soon as the process is complete, we will let you know."
