Mary Jane Bair

Skier & Instructor Extraordinaire


Mary Jane Bair, 1953-2015

The 2014/2015 season at Lookout Pass ended on Sunday, March 22, due to the lack of coverage in critical places. This was the earliest closure in my memory. However the saddest part of this season was the tragic death of Mary Jane Bair at the bottom of Rainbow Ridge on March 8, 2015.

I skied with her on Presidents Day and will greatly miss Mary Jane, expert skier, devoted teacher, inspirational mother, and friend to all. I estimate that over 500 people attended her Memorial Mass on March 14, 2015.

On Sunday, August 30, 2015, several of us placed a tribute to her on a healthy tamerack on the runout to Chair 2, and again celebrated the life of our friend Mary Jane.
