Papa Snow

Red Mountain

My dear friend Eryl passed away last September but I am thinking of him today … on his birthday.

I first met Eryl (or Papa Snow as he was affectionately known) when I started working as a Lifty (ski tow operator) at Ben Lomond when I was a wee young lass.

We shared many happy times in the snow surrounded by special friends including Goody, Luke, Elise, Steve and many more.  The most memorable being a trip to Red Mountain in Canada in 2005.  Eryl was 71 at the time, but that didn’t stop him from skiing all day, passing around his hip flask on the chair lift, hitch hiking and even dancing on the bar.

Eryl had a vigor for life and I miss him dearly. x
