John Denver Ski Shrine

The John Denver Ski Shrine on Aspen Mountain was created by locals Maddy Lieb and Lisa Bolerjack during the 1997-98 ski season, just a few months after his death in October 1997. In an interview given in October 2008, Maddy Lieb said that she and Lisa decided to put the John Denver Shrine in its present location because someone else had already put a bench there to sit on. So they put up laminated pictures and photos and beads and other things, including a laminted program from his memorial service. Then other people started adding other items to the shrine. There used to be a framed John Denver vinyl record in the shrine, but someone took it. Annie Denver donated some wind chimes from her home and the Ski Patrol put them high up in a tree. >>read more >>windstar foundation >>sanctuary
