    4. This book chronicles the 1998 Vail Fires Lodges in the expansion area of Vail were burned down right before they opened There was a great deal of controversy surrounding the Vail expansion and the suspect list is quite long Its an interesting look at environmental and ski issues in the West.

    5. Interesting exploration of Vail and the fires that occurred there in 1998, as well as the areas economic and environmental concerns for anyone who s interested in skiing and its impact on the environment.

    6. Unsatisfying and dated I m not sure it s a mystery if you never know the culprit Also, the events ecoterrorism at Vail took place before September 11 and the economic crisis, and the world described feels naive and idealistic even if we were naive and idealistic then Don t bother.

    7. an interesting story especially if you lived in colorado at the time of course, since readin this, the story has come to a close

    8. Good read about the ski industry and its impact on local communities Unfortunately, it was published before it was known who set fire to Vail.
