The power of fifth

Dear Editor:

Regarding your article on the Power of Four race (“Kings of the mountain,” Sunday, March 6, The Aspen Times)

Fifth place is not so bad either. Wouldn’t it have been great to read anything of the duo who came in at No. 5, as they were the first from Aspen? While the earlier winners deserved the praise, all were out-of-towners. Let’s hear it for Brian Johnson, Highlands Ski Patrol, and Pierre Wille, longtime champ, who showed everyone that our men are at the top too!
