Sanctuaries in the Snow

The Mazik Shrine (Snowmass)

Notice:  During the 2016-17 ski season 5 Shrines on Snowmass were destroyed. However, during this same time period no Shrines on any of the other 3 mountains were destroyed (with the minor exception of the Shrine to Donald Trump which was put up on Aspen Mountain in February 2017 and lasted only a week or so before someone tore it out).  The 5 Shrines destroyed on Snowmass were:  1.  The Barkley Shrine; 2.  The Black Lab Shrine; 3.  The Golf Shrine; 4. The Max Shrine; and 5.  The Mazik Shrine.  With the exception of the Golf Shrine, all of these Shrines were located on the (skier's) right side of the Naked Lady run.

Mazik Weiss was a Wheaten Terrier who lived from 1995 to 2011 and belonged to Jerry and Elaine Weiss.  "He was the BEST dog ever and had a great disposition and was great with kids."  The Shrine was established in January 2012.  Thanks to Trung Vu George, and also Hannah and Joshua, for their help with this page.
