Tipsline: Need better airport snacks
Vail CO, Colorado
Greta Blamire. I’m wondering why the Eagle County Airport does not have any concessions outside of security. All there is are a couple of vending machines that are poorly functioning, maintained by a company with very poor customer service and no representative in the area.
Chair prevents injuries
This is a message in response to Tom Clancy’s “Don’t ski Vail, then,” in the Wisdom from the Web. My name is David Crambell. I worked the bottom of chair 5 all of the 2005-2006 season and half of the 2006-2007 season.
The only point about not dumping chair 5 is if you stand down there long enough and see the injured people coming back down … you deter a lot of people who (would) just see a high-speed chairlift and say, oh, there’s a lift, and (get on). They’d ride down to the bottom, and end up with a broken leg or a torn meniscus or a broken shoulder or a face split open on a rock.
