The Úlfar Skæringsson and Yvan Tache Memorial Bench (Aspen Mountain)

The Úlfar Skæringsson and Yvan Tache Memorial Bench is on Aspen Mountain. I found it for the first time in January 2014. The bench was made by Ray Smalls, and includes the flags of Iceland and Canada.

Úlfar Skæringsson was born on Oct 29,1930, and passed away at his home in Aspen on September 2, 2011 at the age of 80 years.

His wife was Hjordis "Queen Bee" Skæringsson, who worked at Buttermilk Ski School for years and she also ran the private lesson desk there. She was born on May 28, 1926 and died on July 17, 1995. Her memorial bench is at Buttermilk; see this page: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.642994502439184.1073741954.100001859201674&type=1&l=725e7d7092.
