A few thoughts about the ski resorts

After I reading your story in the Sept. 24 edition paper about the Ski Area COO Luncheon, a few thoughts popped up.

These are probably the three of the most influential people in Summit County, but they are not elected nor do their companies have a single vote.

Who is on the board of directors for these companies and are there local people on the boards? Do the citizens of Summit County have any say in what these companies do, or are we just another company town? 

It’s really great that they provide employee housing, but don’t they make money doing the housing? Granted that these companies are in the business of making money, but when the profits come at such an expense and impact to the community, shouldn’t we all have a say or at least benefit from this impact?

The $8 million bonus that the big boss got would sure help a lot with the health insurance for the employees. If you’re going to cut expenses and jobs, why not just let the one person go who really seems not to do anything but give himself a bonus?

Then there is the $20 fee for the luncheon to find out what’s up. Sometimes it just makes your brain hurt trying to understand all this high finance. I guess it’s the price you have to pay just to ski.
