Cabriolet a second-class option for Breck

Max I. Miller, Breckenridge

After reading the article about Vail Resorts’ proposal of installing an open-air cabriolet instead of a gondola (SDN Dec. 3), I couldn’t help but comment. It seems to me that this is a second-class option that lends itself to making Breckenridge a less desirable area to ski. Think about it, who would prefer standing up and enduring high winds on a cold day to sitting in a comfortable enclosed gondola? Quite frankly, I’d prefer to drive up to Peak 8 rather than ride in the open air and be required to stand.

Sometimes the quickest and less expensive option isn’t always the best in the long run. Not only from an environmental perspective, but from a pure marketing perspective, the cabriolet doesn’t make a lot of sense to me, but then I’m not writing the check.
