A vote for Base Village

Aspen Times writer

Dear Editor:We have been bringing our family to Snowmass since its inception. Selfishly we have enjoyed the uncrowded skiing and would rather not see a new Base Village. But that is neither fair nor realistic.Many families have non-skiing members and will gravitate to areas with multiple activities. Conventions and large groups are an important necessity and they need resort hotel facility. Being in the family resort business ourselves we learned early on to capture the children. If they have a good time, the parents will return. “Water parks” and their ilk may sound a bit much but they will generate return business.The Crown family has been exceedingly generous and we hope the community will support them. If we could we would unhesitatingly vote for the new Base Village. Dick and Barb CatlinWoodstock, Vt.
