of Summit Daily is reporting that a recent vote by Keystone Resort ski patrollers ended with a decision to not unionize.

The votes were reportedly 35-34 in favor of not unionizing.

The decision was a blow for patrollers who wanted to join a union like their counterparts at Park City Mountain Resort, Stevens Pass, Telluride, and now Breckenridge.

I’m not going to play politics here, but it does seem odd that Vail Resorts only pays ski patrollers $1/hour more than their entry-level employees.

Ski patrollers are responsible for life-saving first aid, avalanche mitigation, and the overall safety of thousands of guests each season.

Surely a little more compensation is reasonable?
