The right call

Dear Editor:

I would like to commend Aspen Skiing Co. for recognizing the problem of patrons overimbibing at the Cloud Nine restaurant. I would like to remind those of you who believe you cannot have fun unless your blood-alcohol content is more than 0.05 that Skico has a responsibility to keep the slopes safe for all.

Ski patrol has enough to keep watch on besides entitled partiers. Rich or poor, if you can’t enjoy your lunch without drinking more than three cocktails, I suggest you have a problem you need to deal with. Skico actually is doing you a favor and saving your intoxicated self from skiing into a tree.

Kim Vieira
