Lee Mulcahy's protracted and very public battle with Aspen's Skico (which operates Snowmass) over ski instructor pay may have ended in some sense with his firing, but he's not giving up yet; when he got a commission to do a bike sculpture for the USA Pro Cycling Challenge's leg through Aspen, he jumped at the opportunity to stick it to Skico once more. Doubtless, Mulcahy's got his share of supporters and detractors. Reader Tinylvis chimes in with some kind words:
Lee was an amazing ski instructor. He also is a bit of an idealist, which makes me respect him and proudly say I know him. SkiCo's loss - in more ways than that corporate entity will ever realize.
Skico, most likely, would beg to differ.
