Letter to the editor: Vail Resorts could use more enforcement of COVID-19 rules


My husband and I skied at Breckenridge on Monday morning. The slopes were very nice early on, and this is our favorite place to ski since we live close. However, a couple of things concerned me. We left at about 11 a.m. from the base of Peak 8, and I saw many people with no masks on or not wearing their masks correctly (it was below the nose). Some were sitting at the tables that Vail Resorts had put out, and some were just standing around. We have been skiing several times this year and this is the first time the issue was so bad. It would have been a good idea if there had been some Vail Resorts employees walking around and politely asking folks to mask up. However, that was not the case. We went inside for the restroom and saw people sitting around on the floor since there is no seating inside, and most of them were without masks. It’s one thing for Vail Resorts to have a policy to mask up and social distance, but it’s another thing to come up with procedures that help make those policies a reality.
