KUSA - Property owners in Beaver Creek are suing Vail Resorts to stop a proposed package of new attractions, including a ski-hill roller coaster for the summer tourist season.

Neighbors say the additions are not a good fit for their community.

Vail Resorts is not calling its proposed new attractions an amusement park. The resort is instead promoting the additions as a summer mountain adventure.

Vail Resorts issued the following statement in regards to the lawsuit:

"We understand that there has been a reactivation of a previous lawsuit which in our opinion is not relevant. We disagree with their allegations and will vigorously defend our position. After spending so much time with property owners to respond to their concerns expressed in 2006 - including close to 10 meetings since February of this year - we are very surprised and disappointed that they are reactivating their lawsuit because our dramatically revised plans are responsive, terrific, and will engage a broader group of kids from different income and diverse backgrounds at our premier resort and in the outdoors as only we know how to do."
