It is impossible to Give A Flake about climate change today in America without talking about Donald Trump.
As a business with diverse clientele, many of whom are supporters of the president, we know that wading into this issue is fraught. We don’t want to be partisan, and frankly, we don’t want to offend our guests, all good people who care as much about the world and their children as we do. But at the same time, Aspen Skiing Company has an obligation to those very guests, the community here, and our employees, to seriously and diligently ensure the durability of our business. The truth is that many of Mr. Trump’s policies directly diminish our business and threaten our ability to operate, today and into the future. To Give A Flake today is to grapple with some of the policies the president has enacted. Below, we do that, so that engaged citizens can understand these changes, and support or oppose them as they see fit.
