Happily employed by Skico

Dear Editor:

Thanks for the eloquent words from the longtime Aspen Skiing Co. pros. And now for a word from an apprentice:

Guy – you do not speak for me or any other apprentices I have spoken with. I may be at the bottom of the heap, but I am on top of the world. Those of us living the dream do not feel exploited. We clearly understood the terms of employment and consider ourselves lucky to be chosen. We’re working hard to climb the ladder and loving every moment of it.

If you need a cause, please consider helping the homeless or volunteering at the hospital. Those people need your help. We do not, and resent the fact that you have chosen to be our champion.

Merry Keefe
