Some people just don't know how to have fun.
Homeowners near the Haymeadow ski run at Beaver Creek are fighting Vail Resorts' plans to install an alpine slide.
What's an alpine slide? It;s a sort of luge track you run on wheeled sleds when there's no snow.
Owners of expensive homes near Haymeadow say the track would change the character of the area.
“It’s not what people here want. I’d say at least 90 percent of the resort property owners are against it,” said Bernie Scharf,” president of the McCoy Peak Condominium Association and spokesman for several other associations in the Haymeadow area.
Vail Resorts has put off the project until least Jan. 31 while it looks at alternative sites, an official said.
