I ran into Chuck Tolton a couple days ago in the Target store in Silverthorne (Colorado). We had very little time to chat, but he did tell me that the China project is still on, and that he had a big meeting to attend about it coming up very soon. I regret that we did not have much time to really catch up.
Chuck is one of the real good guys. As a previous poster has noted, he has always carried an incredible amount of respect from virtually all who work with him, at any level. I will not speculate on what happened at Keystone, but I will agree that, in his tenure there as Mountain Manager, Chuck made some great things happen. It was a shock and disappointment to me when he left--even though as an instructor, I did not work in his direct department.
