Vail Daily letter: Like International
Vail, CO Colorado
Thanks for bringing this issue to the attention of those who do not live in the Vail Valley but try to keep up with what is going on in Vail.
My wife and I have skied Vail every year since 1974 with our two sons, one of whom lives in the valley today.
We all agree that International should remain the name.
It is a part of the history of Vail, and it sets a bad precedent to rename such a prominent run.
I am not objecting to naming a run on the mountain for Lindsey Vonn and like the idea of renaming a run at Golden Peak.
Vail Resorts needs to realize that Vail has become a community of individuals, and their views should be considered along with the marketing considerations that clearly played a part in their decision.
I suggest you run the renaming issue in the newspaper’s poll.
