Letter: From Booth Heights to Ever Vail
I was sorry to hear that Beth Howard, new COO of Vail Mountain, thinks Booth Heights is an “ideal” location for employee housing. I ask her to consider the recent Town Council election which was clearly a vote against Booth Heights. I call the election results a sweep for the sheep.
Vail voters value their wildlife: they speak for the sheep when they said no to Booth Heights. I hope that Beth will work to find a more suitable location for VR employee housing. She said Ever Vail (between Lionshead and Cascade) ) is on her “radar screen” with the possibility of 45 employee housing units. Perhaps an additional 30 units could be built at Ever Vail as an alternative to Booth Heights. Ever Vail would be an ideal location for VR’s employees.
