Letter: Leave the S in “Highlands Bowl”

Leave the S in “Highlands Bowl”

I felt sad for Roger Marolt and his latest missive about Highlands Bowl. I suggest he go to the two 30-year-old brass plaques at Highlands Ski Area that refer to the bowl as “Highlands Bowl” with a dremmel tool and remove the S’s, if it makes him feel more local. Several years ago, Aspen Skiing Co. grammar police started erroneously calling it “The Highland Bowl” in a feeble attempt to tame the renegade spirit of Highlands — unsuccessfully, I might add. Any local worth their weight in La Cocina enchiladas still calls it “Highlands Bowl.”

As for him considering me to be his “archrival,” that was amusing, as I always refer to him as my whipping boy. Not only does Marolt mispronounce Highlands Bowl, he can’t even ski it properly. For all I care, he can call it Dorothy.
