A sick attitude

Dear Editor:

I was appalled by Joel Stonington’s article in Monday’s Aspen Times (“Sick skiing,” Jan. 7).

Good for you for getting out there for the epic powder, even with shivers, dizziness and nausea. But I think it is shockingly brazen for you to infect everyone unlucky enough to end up on the same gondola car with you … then BRAG about it!

If you are going to go ski when you are sick, ride the chairlifts, where you are less likely to infect innocent bystanders.
