Vail Resorts and its Executive Chairperson of the Board, Rob Katz, are under fire for destroying protected alpine tundra while building a temporary road as part of their efforts to build a new lift at Keystone.
Vail’s Executive Chairperson of the Board, Rob Katz, recently received criticism from Republicans across Colorado for joining George Soros and Chuck Schumer in an effort to deceive Republican primary voters into voting for the Republican Senate candidate preferred by radical liberals.
According to the Colorado Sun, “forest officials earlier this month saw construction crews plowing that temporary road beyond what was allowed, impacting alpine tundra and burying a stream with debris.”
Vail Resorts was served a cease and desist letter by the U.S. Forest Service that said, “Based on past experience with road construction in sensitive alpine areas, I am not optimistic Keystone will be successful in repairing or restoring the newly graded road that was constructed to the top terminal of the Bergman chair lift.”
As part of its global warming agenda called, “Commitment to Zero”, Vail Resorts has a section on its website called “Zero Net Impact On Forests” where it states, “Vail Resorts intends to achieve zero net operating impact on forests and habitat by 2030 by planting or restoring an acre of forest for every acre of forest displaced by our operations from 2017 onward, with the goal of creating healthier, more resilient forests.”
The Executive Chairperson of the Board at Vail Resorts, Rob Katz, is a known liberal activist who was recently criticized by leading Colorado Republicans for joining George Soros in “attacking our democracy”.
Katz’s attempt to influence Colorado’s election failed and the candidate he tried to deceive Republican primary voters into voting against had a few choice words recently for the liberal activist:
“Michael Bennet’s allies tried to shield him from the accountability of the voters, but that is the great thing about our political system—Schumer, Bennet, and Rob Katz can scheme—voters get the final say,” Republican U.S. Senate nominee Joe O’Dea recently told The Dispatch.
Political activism from companies and leading figures associated with those brands have had big impacts on the bottom line of companies like Disney recently and one of Joe O’Dea’s top consultants recently expressed surprise on Twitter that Vail would associate it’s brand with “a sleazy anti-Democratic enterprise like this.”
