Take a run for those who can’t

Dear Editor:This winter, our community has been deeply affected by tragic on-mountain accidents and deaths, as well as numerous devastating injuries to both guests and residents.As an Aspen native, I think this is among the most difficult winters in recent history for lots of people in the valley. To all of my fellow alpine and Nordic skiers, snowboarders, snowshoers and general winter sports enthusiasts: Please do not take a single day out or up there for granted! Many of your compatriots are unable to do the things they love this season – so I’m asking you to take advantage of what our beautiful mountains have to offer and enjoy those activities as much as possible. Remember your friends who cannot participate and take some runs on our behalf!After having torn my left ACL for a second time, I’d like to take this opportunity to acknowledge everyone who has been involved in my recovery. Enormous thanks go to Dr. Pevny, Dr. Labovitch, Dr. Maddux, Vicki, Jeff and C.J. at Orthopedic Associates. At Aspen Valley Hospital, I’m so grateful to Lucy Morgan, Vicky, Amber, Julie, Jan, Colleen, Tina, Katie, Matt, Carol, Todd, Dr. Beck, Jeannette, Heather, Jamie, Ruth, Judy, Maggie, Grace, Jane, Sebastian, Andrew and Lisa. Joe Kistner and D’arcy Brown have also assisted with my post-surgical care. I feel fortunate having access to such extraordinary medical professionals!Best wishes to everyone for a safe remainder of winter.Casady M. HenryAspen

State issues Vail Resorts a notice of violation for 2021 fish kill

Vail Resorts has received notice of violation and a cease and desist order in the wake of a spill, which qualifies as a “discharge of pollutants,” last year from part of the Vail Mountain snowmaking system that ultimately resulted in a fish kill in Gore Creek.
