Pay them more

Dear Editor:

I am writing in regard to the salaries of the ski instructors. I have taken lessons for more than a decade at Snowmass and am appalled to learn that some instructors are only paid 10 to 15 percent of the cost of a lesson. This is an insult that truly borders on abuse – both of your highly professional instructors and of the trust of your clients.

I can only hope that this will be changed rapidly – and hopefully before my own winter trip!
