Tipsline: Avon needs friendlier bus system
Vail CO, Colorado
Need greener, friendlier buses
I’m calling in today about how Avon has greener buses to save on pollution and get better gas mileage. There’s only one problem with that idea is if they don’t stop their buses politely and allow passengers to get on, then nobody’s going to ride it, and if they can’t seem to slow down and obey the speed limits, driving 40 mph shooting snow in my face every time, laughing at me, there’s no point in riding it.
Helping stranded drivers
It’s disappointing that Eagle County does not have a contingency plan with the Red Cross, or anyone else, to help stranded motorists during these winter blizzards. Happy New Year, and please look out for each other.
Editor’s note: The Salvation Army organized the opening of four shelters in Eagle County while the pass was closed and the Vail Interfaith Chapel opened its doors for stranded motorists.
Be safe on the mountain
Skiing and riding can be enjoyed in many ways. At Vail Mountain, you may see people using alpine, snowboard, telemark, cross country or other specialized equipment such as that used by disabled or other skiers.
Regardless of how you decide to enjoy the slopes, always show courtesy to others, and be aware that there are elements of risk in skiing and riding that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce.
Please enjoy Vail Mountain at its finest conditions. Take it easy and take are of yourself.
