Letter: A lose-lose situation?

A lose-lose situation?

In the 10-plus year history of snow polo in Aspen, the event has proven the following:

• Snow polo can be very dangerous for the horses.

• Snow polo can be extremely damaging to the field on which it’s played.

• Snow polo attracts a sparse crowd.

This year the applicant has agreed to make and/or truck snow to Wagner Park for the event in an attempt to protect the field. Thirty-plus tons of man-made snow is not a positive for Aspen’s carbon footprint.

I question the decision-making of City Council and the Parks Department regarding snow polo.

What’s the point?
