It would be really hard to overeestimate what that photo and subsequent poster has meant to Steamboat. It has done more than anything I can think of to bring skiers and others to the Yampa Valley. It truly was marketing genius,and is an image I never grow tired of looking at. (Still have my original copy too!) Think deep!
No,didn't go to school in Hayden (maybe Ben Beall?) Brian,I hope that your're wrong,and common sense/intelligence continues to be the case here.
I also agree that this is a reasonable approach by the ski area,in order to best ensure that accidents and injuries are avoided on the ski mountain after operating hours. I am glad that the ski area is emphasizing that this is a voluntary issue,and is asking for the help and cooperation of the various users of the terrain. Many of us who have been hiking on the mountain during non-operational hours for many years have always known that the ski corp makes the attempt to keep users away from hazards such as snowmaking operations and grooming,and most of the people I know have used common sense to avoid injury or conflict. Hopefully this approach will continue,as it is to the benefit of all if we work together.
It almost makes me feel guilty that I can ski every day if I want. Almost.
Oh come one,Sled. You'll still have plenty of fuel to zip around the backcountry. Do you really think that the issues raised here are of no consequence? I agree that your points are valid too,but does that make this pipeline a good idea? I'm willing to be convinced that it is,but I certainly have my doubts.
A man is down,so this guy kicks him,viciously,in the head. What a coward! He knew it was wrong? Apparently he is not man enough to turn himself in,but had to be caught because he was too dumb to leave the area after committing his assault He was probably pleased with himself,until he got arrested. I hope they get anyone else who was involved and punish them as much as they deserve. Too much liquid courage flowing that night.
Although I am happy to save money on my plowing bill,I would rather have deep powder skiing and support my friends in the plowing business. Let it snow!
The titles of Coulter's books are enough to convince me that she is shallow in her thinking. I think that she just enjoys provoking people,even moderates.She is probably good entertainment for those who agree with her point of view. I might be inclined to listen to her if she was not so abrasive and so disrespectful of those who disagree with her. There are many talking heads on all sides of the political spectrum;she's just one of the louder ones.
Hope it snows soon...
Vail and Aspen continue to insult the Colorado skiers by charging such daily rates. Steamboat is only slightly better. These and other Colorado resorts make it clear that they are not really interested in the Colorado skier;rather,they prefer to cater to the out-of-state skier,who has paid so much to merely get to the Colorado resort that the lift ticket price probably seems incidental to them. The Colorado resorts could learn a lesson from the resorts in Utah,which routinely charge far less for a daily ticket,offer plenty of discounts for the local skier,and often offer a better skiing experience than their Colorado counterparts.
