Mark McKinnon: Peak 6 discomfort

I recently took the opportunity to attend a Breckenridge Town Council meeting to listen to the back and forth about Peak 6. I was impressed by members of the community who had clearly done their homework and expressed legitimate and thoughtful concerns.

I was, however, appalled at the attitude of a Vail Resorts representative I heard responding to a citizen in the hallway during the break who asked why she had not received answers to some straight-forward questions submitted more than a week prior to the meeting.

The response? “Let me to talk to them (the higher ups), and see what their comfort level is in getting back to you.”

Huh? Their “comfort” level? In answering a taxpayer and concerned citizen’s questions about the future of her community?

If Vail Resorts has to have a “comfort level” to respond to questions from the community, it’s no wonder so many of us in Summit County have a serious level of discomfort about this whole Peak 6 exercise and why we feel we’re being played by the powers for a fait accompli determined long ago.
