Letter: Veterans have been supplying snow-report videos since 2010

I commend Aspen Skiing Co. for finally doing videos. But we veterans approached you in 2010 about having disabled veterans doing daily snow-report videos on the website AspenSkiAndSnowReport.com. And we’ve been doing it daily for five years now on the Web, showcasing the best skiing Aspen has to offer. Which also raises awareness that disabled veterans can do great things to enrich the community. Ski Logik gives us $30,000 worth of skis to pass out to local disabled and disabled veterans each year because of our services. I wish there were a way to show the pictures of disabled and disabled veterans of the Aspen area receiving the skis. ITunes gives us free music for the videos. We show honestly what the conditions are like daily, which truly helps the community. Veterans trained here in World War II, so Skico, why not use us Aspen disabled veterans to help? We are very honorable and honest skiers. Thank you for your time.

Earl Williamson
