VAIL URGED TO HALT EXPANSION AMID ANONYMOUS THREATS
Published October 23, 1998
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).
