Sanctuaries in the Snow

The Marty Hershey Bench (Buttermilk)

Marty Hershey was a former Aspen Police Chief and City Councilman.  He was also a ski instructor, golfer, and a judge.  He was born in 1926 and died in 2002.  The wooden bench in his memory was at first at the base of Buttermilk, but during the 2014-15 season was moved near the building at the bottom of the West Buttermilk Express lift.   Carved on the back of the bench is this: 

"Marty Hershey 1926--2002, Ski Instructor-Golfer-Judge"
