    Open Letter to Vail Resorts From Pissed Off New Yorker About Legal Marijuana Use At Resorts

    Dear Vail Resorts,

    Let me explain to you why I will not be returning to this resort anytime in the near future and will indicate to other families on online forums that they should decline to come to Vail as well.

    As you are aware, marijuana is now legal in Colorado. I have been visiting Vail and Beaver Creek for many years now with my family, and enjoyed all my years here with no real problems. We have a lot of memories here. Within the span of several days, my son and I were exposed to numerous conversations on buses, gondola rides and restaurants related to recreational drug use. The fact that people are restricted to smoking pot in the privacy of their room doesnít mean that they wonít reek of pot on gondola rides, or that they wonít be talking about getting high with numerous other substances within earshot of numerous families. Within the span of two to three days, I had at least three to four separate occasions in public areas where I had to specifically ask people to not talk about their drug use. People were obviously put off by my asking them to stop, and I was furious to even be put in this situation.

    I think the public debate on allowing pot to be sold is completely off. The people who live this type of lifestyle canít afford to support resorts like Vail that frankly cater to a demographic more like my own, and candidly, you donít get to be successful by engaging in this type of lifestyle. Why am I going to pay to come to a resort where my son is exposed to these sorts of things? I donít want him skiing or going anywhere on his own ó he is a teenager, and why should he be shaped by these types of conversations?

    Not only this, but itís a safety hazard. Do you think I want people speeding by me on the slopes who were high the evening before?

    I really recommend you get this situation under control as quickly as possible because word will get out to families very quickly. At this point, Iím very much inclined to go to Utah for my vacations instead of Colorado. You canít be a destination resort for high-earners and a pot-town at the same time ó you have to choose.

    Marijuana is a gateway drug. Fast forward and next thing you know Vail and Beaver Creek will be full of heroin and meth addicts and all the bathrooms will have sharps containers like the Stewart's stores along the Northway. Your ON3P's will have to be locked up or will be stolen and traded for a quick hit of the juju juice. And good luck finding an unoccupied bathroom stall to take a shit in with all the passed out junkies. You all can laugh at Christine, but this is where Vail is headed.

    Very porous argument, Christine. And fuck you, Christine.

    On another note, edibles are the way to go when at the resort. No fiddling with cold vape pens or lighters.

    I was in the parking lot at Bachy on Christmas day. Saw a mom puffing away on a doobie. Her two very young kids, politely waiting for mom to finish her hit. I guess Bachelor chose to be a low income destination for pot heads? Still, I wouldn't rule out Utah as a ski vacation spot.

    That's awfully stuck-up for a New Yorker. Must be Upper East Side money.
    Then again, I called it quits with the east coast back in 07. My parents finally did a few years ago too.

    I could really use some Zabars.

    I wish I couldve convinced family that the intermountain west was better. They just never got it. My bro in law does have a great construction biz here on the east coast, but with all the building and his current connections I can't imagine he wouldnt do awesome in a place like Utah that's booming. Both my parents are retired. I miss Utah a lot, but NY is still "new" again. The kids dig it here. We have more of a support system so I guess that's good.

    The funniest thing about Christine’s rant is that New York has the highest per-capita use of Ganga in the US of FKNA.

    Remember when MtB management put up the “no smoking weed” signs at all the chairs? I met the guy who stole the one at Sky - he worked there - sez he has the worlds biggest refrigerator magnets.

    Dude if not for the easy weed why would anyone go to Colorado? Crowded, overpriced and meh snow. I'd take Utah any day over CO, but I am biased and typically travel with my own weed.
