Letter: Pass price not really that bad

Hi, Tony V. — great column today as usual (“Where else can you buy amazing thrills for such a price?” Commentary, The Aspen Times, Nov. 14)!

Just out of curiosity, I did some number-crunching. Adjusted for inflation, that $140 ski pass from 1946 would cost $1,797 today. As much as I hate to admit it, maybe we don’t have it so bad now!
