Ski knowledge needs to improve

Aspen Times writer

Dear Editor:

I just can’t believe that the telephone operators at the “Aspen Chamber and Visitors Bureau” never heard of Stein Erikson. What kind of uninformed idiots and nitwits hold such positions in Aspen?

I worked with Stein at Snowmass 35 years ago and have seen him several times since in Utah.

He was elected to the Ski Hall of Fame just recently – in fact, it was just announced in a recent Aspen Times. He is an Olympic champion and an icon of skiing.

C’mon, Aspen – Get with it. We don’t need such stupidity from your employees.
