Bill "Sarge" Brown, a Colorado ski insustry pioneer and Powderhorn friend, died at his home Sunday. Bill stopped by the mountain regularly and always had a box of chocolates for us. He will be missed by our entire staff.
From the Daily Sentinel: After Brown joined the U.S. Army in 1942, he was stationed at Camp Hale in Colorado and became a member of the 10th Mountain Division. He retired from the Army in 1966 as a senior sergeant major. Upon his retirement, Brown was invited to become Vail’s mountain manager. He was inducted into the Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame in 1982.
