Don’t screw it up

Dear Editor:With apologies to professional skiers, snowboarders and snowmobilers, events unfolding at the Ziegler Reservoir in Snowmass Village make the X Games look pathetically pedestrian. A triple what-do-you-call-it on the halfpipe just can’t stand up to a mastodon or a giant, ancient bison. We do have a real treasure in the finds at Ziegler Reservoir and we didn’t even need ESPN to hype the hell out of it for us. The key now is to be certain that some juiced-up developer does not weasel his way into the archeological discoveries in Snowmass and turn this wonderful adventure into another bankruptcy proceeding.Many thanks to the Snowmass Water and Sanitation District and to the Denver Museum of Nature & Science for sharing these amazing discoveries with us.Gaylord T.
