Obituary: David Wales, 1960-2017, Montpelier/Sugarbush - Seven Days

Monday, March 27, 2017

Afton Alps in Minnesota. He celebrated the beginning of winter on the summer solstice each year. Dave was a professional ski instructor for 40 years, certified in Alpine and Telemark disciplines. Early in his career he worked for Otto Hollaus Snowsports Academy, a traveling ski school, in addition to working at Afton Alps for many years. In 1996 he and Martha moved to Vermont and Dave joined the Sugarbush ski school. Dave’s love of skiing was legendary. One of his most illustrative sayings was “Ski Like the River.” Those words embodied how he skied, and how he wanted everyone to ski. He made lessons loads of fun while keeping everyone safe. He just loved to slide on snow, and to free ski with friends old and new. Everyone is encouraged to think of Dave when skiing Jester at Sugarbush, his favorite run.Dave loved to read, too, and was blessed with a remarkable memory. He often treated friends to passages from Tolkien, Freud, the Bible, and Neil Gaiman, as well as the Princess Bride, Mystery Science Theater, and The Onion. Martha and neighbors will complete a favorite project of his, launching the David A. Wales Memorial Little Free Library this summer.A Celebration of Dave’s life will be held on April 9th, at Sugarbush Resort in Warren Vermont at 5:00 PM. His locker at Sugarbush will be retired. Because no one can take his place.In lieu of flowers, we would appreciate donations to the Central Vermont Humane Society, PO Box 687, Montpelier, VT 05601or to the Kellogg Hubbard Library, 135 Main Street, Montpelier, VT 05602.On-line condolence may be sent to

Bob Ream | Obituaries | - The Missoulian

Monday, March 27, 2017

University of Denver. While there, he started the Colorado chapter of The Nature Conservancy, served on ski patrol at Arapahoe Basin, and helped start the DU Alpine Club. He honed his skiing skills while in Colorado, and skiing became a lifelong passion he shared with family and friends.Bob was hired by the U.S. Forest Service in 1966 to study ecology in Minnesota’s million-acre Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Over the next three years he was able to hike and canoe most of the trails and lakes in the BWCA. During this period, Bob met Dr. Dave Mech, who was studying wolves in Isle Royale National Park in Michigan, and began assisting Dave there and in the BWCA. This was the only area in the lower 48 states then inhabited by wolves, and Bob was with Dave in 1968 when the team captured the first wolf and radio-collared it. In 1969, Bob was offered a faculty position in the University of Montana’s School of Forestry by Dean Arnold Bolle, a noted conservation leader, and moved to the state he would call home for the rest of his life. He began the Wolf Ecology Project in 1973 and determined no established pack or breeding pair existed in Montana. He received funding to hire two biologists, and in 1979 they trapped a wolf in the North Fork of the Flathead River valley and tracked her for a year and a half. This wolf found a mate and produced seven pups in 1982, marking the first pack documented in the northern U.S. Rockies in at least 50 years. By 1995, Bob estimated 80 wolves resided in northwest Montana, and wolves now appear to have become a stable part of Montana’s wildlife ecosystem again.   Bob was well known for heading up the Wolf Ecology Project, but he took most pride in the Wilderness and Civilization Program he established at UM in 1975.  The W&C Program is an interdisciplinary program providing students an opportunity to explore humans’ relationship to wilderness and civilization, and includes faculty from wilderness management, ecology, philosophy, Native American studies, economics, creative writing, and others. The program begins each fall with a 10-12 day backpack trip, combining outdoor skills with education. Bob often described how students’ inhibitions dissolved during the trip, which stimulated lively class discussions once they returned to their traditional classroom settings. Thousands of students studied with Bob during his tenure at UM, in courses such as resource conservation, large mammal conservation, wildlife ecology and management, habitat management, and wilderness management, and Bob helped launch the careers of many talented conservationists. Bob capped his UM career as Acting Dean of the School of Forestry from 1993-1994.Bob was passionately involved in politics. He served in the Montana Legislature as a representative from Missoula from 1983-1997, where he distinguished himself on fish and game, taxation, and natural resource issues, sponsoring Montana’s stream access law, mini-Superfund law, and restitution payments for illegally taken wildlife, among others. Bob served as Chair of the Montana Democratic Party from 1997-2005, a period in which the Party saw significant electoral gains at the legislative and statewide levels.    Bob’s other professional accomplishments incl

Lake Tahoe Nevada. I can only imagine what the poet Katherine Lee Bates saw when she wrote “America the Beautiful.” The crystal-clear blue lake, the majestic Alpine trees and the magnificent mountains astounded me as my eyes feasted on the beauty of GOD’s masterpiece. The road to Reno for the Street Vibrations motorcycle festival took us to a place in time as we drove through Carson City and the road leading to Virginia City and the Ponderosa.“What the world needs now is love sweet love.”-Dionne Warwick The tragic and senseless murder of our friend Chef Michael Bates, instructor at Strafford Culinary School and chef extraordinaire, has left us once again wondering “what’s going on” when it’s easier to kill someone ‘in cold blood” than to “reach out and touch somebody’s hand”. Chef Mike, at 48 years of age, was a role model for the city of Baltimore. He was large in statue yet gentle in heart. Chef Mike was passionate in his love for people, food and fine cigars. He never hesitated to greet you with a bear hug and a taste of his newest cuisine.The last time I saw Chef Mike was at Suited to Succeed’ s fundraiser where he grabbed me by the hand, taking me across the floor to his food station bypassing the other food stations so I could sample the food his students had prepared. To the three young men who allegedly robbed and killed Chef Mike after he had given you his possessions, you robbed Baltimore of a precious jewel and yourself of a friend who would have helped you had you only asked. You represented the youth he mentored, so sorry you missed a great opportunity. To his mother Debbie Bates, Aunt Jackie Hamilton and family members, Chef Mike’s living was not in vain. Family hour is Oct. 7 at Wylie Funeral Home, 701 N. Mount Street from 4 8 p.m.Maxine Dixon, a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Baltimore County Chapter has joined Heaven’s choir. Maxine’s voice would linger in the rafters with her emotional rendition of Reverend Paul Jones “I won’t complain.” Omega services is Oct. 7 at 6:30 p.m. at Wylie Funeral Home 9200 Liberty Road.Family and friends are mourning the death of Wilburt LeRoy Simms, son of Mary and Reggie Haysbert after a short illness. Family will receive friends on Friday October 14, 2016 at the family owned Forum Caterers at 6 PM. “…when I’ve gone the last mile of the way”-Sam Cooke Family please keep these families in prayers as they take the final journey with their loved ones. Happy birthday IOTA founder Frank Coakley, Yindra Dixon, Tiger Lil, Rod  Womack, Tobi Pulley, Geraldine Thompson on her 94th birthday. Special shout out to my grandsons Damien Lee and Gregory Packer Jr.It’s your anniversary!

Matilda Rapaport, an Extreme Skier, Is Dead at 30 - New York Times

Monday, August 15, 2016

July 18 in a hospital in Santiago, four days after she was buried in snow. The cause was brain damage from oxygen deprivation, said her husband of only three months, Mattias Hargin, a Swedish Alpine World Cup skier and her high school sweetheart.A winner of several world so-called freeride events, Rapaport had finished fourth in this year’s women’s ski standings of the Swatch-sponsored Freeride World Tour.Rapaport, who was on the international Red Bull team, had appeared in many hair-raising ski films and videos, including “Shades of Winter” (2013), “Pure” (2014) and the coming “Between,” all produced by the Austrian pro skier Sandra Lahnsteiner. Rapaport was also a columnist for the Swedish magazine Women’s Health.She loved to get on top of mountains previously considered unskiable and conquer them by descending, usually alone, by the most direct route. In her own words, she “charged down” rather than skied. Her only witnesses were usually photographers or cameramen in helicopters.“I want to exceed expectations, especially my own limitations so that I can ski harder than before,’’ she said last year. “Of course I’m afraid sometimes. When you step out of the helicopter, which is still in the air, and you’re almost jumping out and you’re grabbing your skis and you need to hold on to that narrow little place filled with snow. And when the helicopter pulls away and you’re on your own, that feels pretty scary. But the moment I put my skis on, I feel confident. I know which way to go and how to get down.”When she died Rapaport was making a video for a new extreme sports video game called Steep, by the French company Ubisoft.To provide realistic footage for the game, Rapaport was alone while descending an And
