If you think Vail is bad, Intrawest is doing the same to Copper Mountain

Martin and Ruth S. Hertzberg, Copper Mountain

I am pleased to note that the citizens of Breckenridge have persuaded Vail Resorts to withdraw its objectionable advertisements. It is certainly true, as Jim Moritz noted in his Sept. 9 letter, that the future of Summit County is being decided not by its citizens but in the boardrooms of Vail Resorts and Intrawest.

For those of us who live in Copper Mountain, the simple proof of that assertion is obvious from: a) the honky-tonk, noise polluting atmosphere that Intrawest has created in its Village base; b) Intrawest’s role in vetoing the carefully researched plans of Copper Mountain residents to incorporate; and c) Intrawest’s proposed planned unit development (PUD) which will despoil Copper’s A- and B-lift neighborhoods and golf course.

Since Intrawest, in its irresponsible rush to convert every acre of available land into cash crop real estate, is alienating, disenfranchising and manipulating the residents of Copper Mountain, we would appreciate all the support we can get from the citizens of Frisco, Silverthorne, Dillon and Breckenridge in helping us maintain an environmentally and family-friendly tone and lifestyle for all of us in Summit County.
