re Range Rover thing I'm not sure of the relevance - tourists can be dumb not exactly shock news. And if the local community really wanted to leverage itself against Vail why not say "your land your problem" once basic issues of human life had been addressed.Vail seems to enjoy Fire, EMS, S&R, Grocery stores.......ugh idk Medical Services standing upon their heads to keep their low paid workforce alive in a global pandemic via testing/ treatment/ hospitalization, not to mention touron management.
Perhaps the "locals" should have left the Range Rover that a touron drove 1/2 way down a ski slope @ Okemo? Nope they got out of bed at 11pm to dig out a SUV from a fn trail.
I'm not sure what the other point is. Vail should respect the community by handing back perks? I'm not sure big corporations think like that where there is revenue to be foregone or significant costs incurred to deliver those perks. Not saying that's good but it is reality in some parts of the capitalist world. Some swag for local charity raffle, a shout out for some fundraising - yup easy for them. Building a parking structure just for locals - hmm
