Max Dercum (1912-2011)

Colorado skiing legend Max Dercum passed away today at 98 years of age. As members of the Colorado Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame, he and his wife, Edna, have been fixtures in Colorado skiing since the 1940's. Together, they founded Ski Tip Lodge, were part of the orignial Board of Directors at Arapahoe Basin, and layed the groundwork for Keystone Resort. Max was always a visionary and imagined just how great skiing in the Snake River valley could be. Our hearts and prayers are with the Dercum family today. We'll miss you Max.
