Photos: Vail 'finder' Earl Eaton remembered this weekend
August 15, 2008 —
This weekend the life of Earl Eaton will be celebrated in an on-mountain ceremony to take place Saturday, Aug. 16 at 11 a.m. at Wildwood Shelter at the top of Vail Mountain.
As my father - who worked with Earl in the 1960s - said to me today, "Earl was a doer," a man of action whose hand's-on approach helped build Vail and Vail Mountain in a very literal sense.
In a time when Vail's worldwide reputation is a bit posh, it's good to remember our roots in tough, yet visionary, men like Earl. For thoughts on the life and character of Earl Eaton, visit this link.
