Grrr, No Thanks

[Refusing Swag] Just so y'all know dear readers, I won't be accepting the free offer* that came in the mail today, which reads:

Dear Ben:

We invite you to join us for our 45th season at Park City Mountain Resort.

Please present this card to the Resort Services Office, in the Resort Base Area, to receive your Complimentary Season Pass with Fast Tracks privileges.

We look forward to seeing you on the mountain.

Peter R. Curtis
President and General Manger (sic)
Park City Mountain Resort

*Besides the fact that taking this freebie (the top-of-the-line pass--$1,350 for the average schlub on two planks) would run counter to every ethical rule in the book, I scarcely resemble Ben Fulton, who hasn't worked at
City Weekly since the end of last ski season.

Also, I only ski at Alta. (Holly Mullen)


  1. I'll take it off your hands! Ethical integrity isn't necessarily my strong point, and I think I could pull off a killer Ben Fulton...

    I'll let you think about it.
    -Ryan Bradford

  2. Well, I tore it up! I really did. Didn't want anyone in edit to be tempted. Including all the freelancers I love, too. -- Holly Mullen

  3. no offence, but for a weekly that is very well known for its "best of salt lake" nominations/winners to be picked by how much ad revenue they generate for you (based on several conversations w various business who do not advertise and wanted to be considered for the issue and were told that as a reason they wouldn't even be considered) your ethics seem a little self aggrandizing.
