Copper Mountain’s letter to Milton Kapner

Summit County CO, Colorado

Dear Mr. Kapner:

This letter is to inform you that due to your recent conduct at Copper Mountain Resort during this year of 2007 and your past behavior in 2006, you are no longer welcome at Copper Mountain Resort. Copper Mountain Resort is private property. Safe and peaceful conduct is essential to the operation of the Resort. Anyone demonstrating unsafe or threatening behavior will not be tolerated at the Resort.

On January 19, 2007, you climbed onto the mountain in street shoes while there were thousands of people skiing in the area. That required our staff to also go on to the mountain to deal with your behavior putting them, you and, most importantly, innocent members of the public at risk.

Your behavior at the Resort was repeated on January 20th. When the Resort staff approached you about such behavior, you were disruptive, aggressive and verbally abusive to Copper Mountain guests and employees. Guests reported being frightened of you and that they feared for the safety of themselves and their children. Copper Mountain Resort will not tolerate this conduct from anyone.

Therefore, by this letter you are advised that you are not permitted on Copper Mountain Resort property. You will not be permitted to ski, golf, attend events or enter into any of the Resorts facilities. This includes the Copper Mountain transportation system. If you come onto the property of the Resort, you will be considered to be trespassing and law enforcement authorities will be called to assist in removing you from the premises.

As you are aware, the County and State roads or highways in the vicinity of Copper Mountain Resort are public property. While you are free to occupy that space for any lawful purpose, any behavior that is unsafe or disruptive on public property may be reported to local agencies with jurisdiction.


Gary Rodgers

General Manager
