Who cares about Minturn?

I was wondering why, when you decided that Minturn’s geograghy was too risky to shoot off fireworks that Vail’s beetle-kill strewn hillsides are somehow safer to risk torching and burning us all alive. Minturn’s hillsides have an east/west orientation. Vail’s are north/south. What makes Vail’s hillsides safer? It just seems like the usual scene where the show must go on in Vail, damn the consequences, while it’s “who cares about Minturn” for the locals. Just curious, Charlie.
