On the Vail Daily Web site, you can comment on each story or editorial you read there. Here, we publish excerpts of those comments:Re: Ski resorts increase environmental scoresPlease stop reporting this as news. The SACC report card was debunked several years ago. I believe when you ran a similar article last spring, a reader gave you the same information.Their zero-growth manifest has been linked to so many anti-resort activities that no other reputable news source even reports this anymore. The real story is how they had an idea that looked legitimate when launched, but then their other hand proceeded to sue every resort at every opportunity they could get with a clear agenda of stopping all growth no matter how well planned.Re: Ski resorts increase environmental scoresBefore spouting off based on your own prejudices, please review the University of Denver and George Washington University study that largely confirmed the validity of the Scorecard as an objective grading method – especially when compared to the industry’s voluntary “Sustainable Slopes” regime: http://www.skiareacitizens.-com/deLeonRivera.pdfAlso, what lawsuits are you talking about? Against the expansion into Two Elk Creek (so-called “Blue Sky Basin”) – what other terrain expansion lawsuits? None.Of course, anyone is entitled to an uneducated opinion. But after all, it’s only that, uneducated, and an opinion.Vail Daily, Vail Colorado CO
