VAIL URGED TO HALT EXPANSION AMID ANONYMOUS THREATS

          Earth Liberation Front, a "radical" group that claimed
     responsibility for burning down $12M worth of buildings on
     Vail Mountain, said in an anonymous e-mail message that,
     "For your safety and convenience, we strongly advise skiers
     to choose other destinations until Vail cancels its
     inexcusable plans for expansion," according to Robert Schwab
     of the DENVER POST.  Despite the warning, Vail Resorts execs
     said "construction already under way will continue."  Vail
     Resorts Chair & CEO Adam Aron said that although he is
     taking the message seriously, "there is no reason to be
     worried" about threats of more damage and he is "trying to
     create an atmosphere of calm surrounding the bombings." 
     Vail Resorts President Andy Daly, on the group's note and
     its "implications" for the public: "We'll have to assure
     them that we are taking care of it."  Execs said the resort
     plans to increase security (DENVER POST, 10/23).
