Don’t fight change

(This letter was originally addressed to the Snowmass Village Town Council.)

Did anyone here ski or board over this Christmas and holiday season at Snowmass? If you had, you would have seen why we need the new Snowmass Base Village layout.

If we listen to people who don’t want change and we follow the way they think, Snowmass never would have been built. This land would all still be a ranch. Whether you like it or not, life is constant change. Nature is constant change and evolution.

I can’t believe this statement I heard. “What do I want Base Village for, I’ll be dead when it is finished.” That way of thinking is self-centered and that person doesn’t care about the younger people making a living here and our future.

I do not think a lot of people realize, without a successful ski area, there would be no Snowmass Village. With the new Base Village, Snowmass will be what I have always thought it could be. Always renewing itself into the best!
