Chris Helfrich has once again hit the nail on the head. Why should the city be considering lavish expenditures so the ski areas can increase their profits? I too have long since stopped skiing. I simply refuse to pay over $100 per person for a day on the slopes. And that gives me the opportunity to complain about the pricing at Smith’s Ballpark. Just a year or 2 ago, I could purchase general admission tickets to a Bees game for $10. Now, the same seats are $22. What are the chances an ordinary family with 3 or 4 kids will be heading out to see a game at these prices?
