A federal judge has ruled the latest owner of Vermont’s Killington Ski Resort won’t be required to honor lifetime ski passes originally granted to investors in the resort after it began operations nearly a half a century ago.

U.S. District Court Judge Christina Reiss confirmed the legal documentation related to the lifetime passes didn’t bind the ownership group made up of SP Land Co. and Powdr Corp. to honor them. The resort most recently changed hands in 2007.

Vermont newspaper The Rutland Herald says nearly 1,243 passes were affected by the ruling.
