Today we honor the memory of Jonathan Swanson. Jonathan, 38, passed away on Friday, August 5th. Jonathan learned to ski at Chester Bowl when 3 or 4 years old, and has been a fixture here almost ever since. He was first hired by Thom Storm at 16 years old as a lift operator and ski instructor, and has continued to work at Chester Bowl ever over the years. He was the friendly face at the race starting point and a lift operator as recently as two winters ago, and also spent hours in the summers waxing the skis for the next season. Jonathan also spent many summers with the summer program.
We are saddened to hear of his passing, and share our condolences with his many friends and family.
