Raise wages, ban bottles

Dear Editor:

When the message is indefensible (a $69 payment goes to beginning instructors on a product Aspen Skiing Co. charges $625), attack the messenger.

Why not solve the problem? Less than 1 percent of lessons occur where instructors are being paid $69 for a full day lesson? Give that 1 percent a raise. It’s high time and a living wage. Problem solved … and then we can all unite forces to ban bottles water in Aspen, and help solve a global problem.
