Smoke shacks being blown up by CO ski resorts - Page 2

post #31 of 35

Except they are being dismantled... http://www.aspenbusinessjournal.com/article.php?id=6114

 

One way for the ski area to avoid bad publicity is to not acknowledge that they are taking them down. I have talked to some Aspenites that suspect skico is doing it.

That's an old article.
But yes a few disappeared a few years ago. Some weren't very well done and I don't think the skico did it.

Huh???

 

Winter Park only has about 63 smoke shacks (but appear on no map).   And some may have been built by patrol...at least the one with the sundeck near some chutes.

 

I know of only one shack torn down in recent years.   When they built the Panoramic lift it left one exposed from the lift.  The remains can still be seen.

Okay, yer right.   Had to suffer through an incredible powder day at Mary Jane yesterday.    Feeling kinda hung over right now.

 

Kinda weird about that Breck shack though.  It was around a long time.   A trainer over there would even lead trash pickup patrols there http://extremesideslipping.com/2009/04/publicity-stunt-fails-due-to-lack-of-organization.html
