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.
