Environmental heros

Kudos to the Aspen Skiing Co.

What a great environmental statement they make, allowing hybrid/electric cars to park free at ski mountain parking lots. Very exciting. This is exactly the sort of action which promotes thought to the environment and credits individuals who are consciously making a choice to drive low-emission, fuel-efficient vehicles.

Although our City Council turned the “free parking” for hybrid cars down, I would encourage them to revive some sort of break (free parking in certain areas?) for these same drivers. As a city, we could be doing more to encourage efforts to maintain a healthy and beautiful environment in Aspen.
