Vail’s stock (NYSE:MTN) will be affected

In addition to poor financial results, high leverage and frustrated customers, MTN seems to be challenged with public labor struggles recently.

Ski patrollers at Park City held a public rally this weekend to gain support for their contract negotiations.

Patrollers walk-out/”work exclusion” caused a 3-day closure at Hunter Mountain earlier in Jan. (Vail’s communication on this issue has been vague)

$100M lawsuit alleging violations of labor laws for not paying employees for all hours worked.

Labor risks could be significant if they result in a major resort closure. At minimum I would expect that trends like this put upward pressure on labor costs.
