The "Victor's Colon" Sign (Snowmass)

Some people refer to that part of Snowmass' Sandy Park run by the Meadows Lift as "Victor's Colon."  There is a sign posted on a tree near there (in the shape of a "V") that says "Victor's Colon" on it.   This is named after Victor Gerdin, an employee of the ski company.  Victor is a past 3-term PSIA Demo Team Member, former SSA Ski School Director, current SSA Trainer, and current ASC Mountain Planner.  He is an avid mountain biker, whitewater kayaker, and private pilot.  For more on Victor, see this link:
