Thanks for affordable senior pass

Dear Editor,

As most of you know, or at least some of you, I have been lobbying Killington for a Senior Residents Pass at a price which us retirees could afford. This past week Killington came out with their new prices for the coming season. Not only did they make the Senior pass affordable, but all retirees in all towns in Vermont were included, and are able to enjoy the new affordable pricing.
I want to take this opportunity to thank Mike Solimano and his team for making it possible for us old folks to benefit from the new price. Not only that, but if you look at the other prices down the line, Killington has made it more affordable for persons of all ages! I know that I can be a pain in the neck, sometimes, well, maybe all the time, but I must give credit where credit is due. Now Mike, if you would only run the Canyon Quad seven days a week, I’d be the happiest guy in Killington, or in Rutland County, maybe the World.

Richard Kropp, Killington
