Colorado ski resort yanks woman’s pass after complaints
DURANGO, Colorado – A company that operates a ski area on U.S. Forest Service land has yanked the season ski pass of a woman who criticized changes to its operating schedule.
Excerpts of a Nov. 2 letter published by The Durango Herald quote Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort CEO Gary Derck saying he refunded the $539 paid by Lauren Slaff so she could find a resort that better met her expectations.
Slaff had raised concerns in a Herald article that the resort was reducing the season’s ski days. Derck said the new schedule actually extended the number of ski days by three weeks.
A message left for a resort spokesman by The Associated Press wasn’t immediately returned Thursday.
Slaff said she moved to Durango from New York City 21/2 years ago largely because of the nearby ski area.
