The Jake Foerster Shrine (Snowmass)
The Jake Foerster Shrine is on Snowmass. I found it on April 12, 2014. Jake Foerster died on August 21, 2013. See this August 22, 2013 Aspen Times article, "Autopsy set for 22-year-old man, Jake Foerster, from Snowmass" http://www.aspentimes.com/

See this Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/FIEVELandLOLO/ It states that the page is "A Tribute to Jake Powell Foerster / Fievel."
According to this page, Jake was known musically as "FieVel." Click here: http://soulsinaction.com/a-family-affair-refievel-a-tribute-to-jake-powell-forester/

On the Rim Trail above Snowmass Village there is a look out site that has 360 degree views of Snowmass, Mt. Daly, Capital Peak and the Ziegler Reservoir. This spot is known by three different names: Spiral Point, Yin Yang, and the Stark King Memorial. See these two pages for more information on this: http://www.aspentrailfinder.com/spiral-point/ and http://www.aspendailynews.com/section/home/168176
An engraved bench is nearby (installed by Jake's father, E.J.) which reads as follows: “Just remember Fievel – one man’s sunset is another man’s dawn. I don't know what’s out there beyond those hills. But if you ride yonder… head up, eyes steady, heart open… I think one day you'll find that you're the hero you've been looking for. Jake Foerster 8/14/91 – 8/21/13.” This quote is from a 1991 movie called "An American Tail: Fievel Goes West." As stated above, "FieVel" was Jake's nickname. Photos of this bench are below, photo credit to Dr. Alex Goldberg.
