"In Search of Big Air" (by Alex Markels, March 5), chronicling a four-day high school ski trip to Salt Lake City, left me gasping. Tour companies that organize such trips assure parents that there will be strict rules, curfews and a no-nonsense approach to discipline. Reading the article made me, as a parent, feel misled. I allowed my daughter to go on the trip, but I obviously made the wrong decision.
It's hard to identify an activity not sanctioned by the high school when solicitation for it is conducted at the school and the bus pickup point is the school parking lot. After the article appeared, we got a call from the office at Los Alamitos High School telling us that the trip was an "underground activity" in no way sanctioned by the school.
