VR should ban smoking

RE: Vail to ban lift smoke (SDN Jan. 10)

“I pay to be on the mountain,” she said. “I can smoke. … I’m not from another country. I should have rights.”

We (nonsmokers) outnumber you. We also pay to be in lift lines, on the lift and on the mountain.

When we are in a confined area ” lift lines and chairs ” so we can’t get away from the hazardous obnoxious smoke you’re blowing. So, you shouldn’t smoke. It is bad manners to begin with and bad for our health and the environment in the long run.

Vail Resorts should ban smoking in places of public use in the ski resort area ” all lift line mazes, all lift chairs and all restaurant decks.

The restaurants themselves are already covered by county law.
