Letter: Snowboarders are great, but skiers need a haven
First Published Jan 24 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Mar 24 2014 11:35 pm

My kids are snowboarders. Some of my best friends are snowboarders. I love snowboarders!

There are times, however, when I want a place to just ski and not have to deal with a boarder cutting me off and yelling "sorry dude" as I put myself back together after a wipe-out ("Suit claims Alta’s ban on snowboards violates rights," Tribune, Jan. 15).

Alta provides the incredible combination of great terrain, reasonable lift prices, and a great powder snow-skiing tradition pioneered by Alf Engen. Snowbird offers comparable skiing and snowboarding conditions just down the hill from Alta and it welcomes snowboarders.

I vote to preserve Alta as a haven for skiers!
