Reader: Marijuana-using skiers will stop going to resorts that don't tolerate pot

There was a huge response to our post featuring Arapahoe Basin chief operating officer Alan Henceroth's post about public consumption of marijuana and the possibility of having one's lift ticket pulled for a violation. Here's the take of someone who thinks consumers will choose where to ski in part because of pot policies at different areas.

Even as A-Basin takes an intolerant approach, other resorts will look the other way in most instances, as long as things don't get out of hand. That's the beauty of the free market. People will simply vote with their skis.
