BRATTLEBORO -- A jury in a federal court has ordered the promoter of the Winter Dew Tour to pay Mount Snow more than $2 million.

In its verdict, the jury concluded that The Alliance of Action Sports, NBC Universal Media and MBC Sports Ventures breached their contract agreement with Mount Snow when it moved the 2011 tour stop from the Dover ski resort to Killington.

In January 2012, Mount Snow filed suit in U.S. District Court for the District of Vermont, claiming the defendants had breached the contract, costing Mount Snow more than $3 million in damages related to the media value of hosting the tour stop.

The organizers of the tour claimed the contract "was never fully executed and is not enforceable," and asked the court to dismiss the suit.

The court refused to do so and it went to trial late last week. On May 8, the jury came down on Mount Snow's side.
