Letter: Renaming the Eagle County airport

Fred Rupp
Wolcott, CO Colorado

I agree that “Colorado International Airport” is both too pretentious and a whole lot misleading, so I don’t want it to be considered for the Eagle County Regional Airport re-naming. But I also do not want “Vail” to be in the new name. Vail is already too prevalent in the names of things that are either far removed or have nothing to do with Vail. I would choose “Colorado Mountain Airport,” a properly descriptive title that conveys its location, and implies its summer and winter recreational opportunities.
