Ski Resort Sues Over Power Outage

Eldora Forced To Close 1 Day Over President's Weekend

A Colorado ski area is suing over a power outage that forced it to close on the Saturday of the busy President's Day holiday weekend.

Eldora Mountain Resort is suing Paonia LLC, a utilities contractor that cut an electrical service line to the resort while excavating in the area on Presidents Day weekend, forcing the resort to close for a day and lose significant revenue, according to the Boulder Daily Camera.

Because Eldora could not open that day, according to the lawsuit, it "suffered a significant loss of business and loss of business revenues."

The newspaper reported that Eldora is asking for compensation for present and future damages and attorneys fees.
