I didn't know until I received the latest copy of Instructor to Instructor this week. He was a Loveland institution. This is from the newsletter.
Serge had long retired before my time at Loveland. I heard many stories about Serge from long-timers. My condolences to his family in Chamonix, France and the Loveland Community.
On Saturday, March 22nd, Serge Couttet passed away. Serge has been a long time member of the PSIA. He ran the Loveland Ski School for over 30 years. Many people will remember Serge for his dedication to the skiing industry. Serge was a very active member of our organization, he was a well known examiner and chief examiner for the PSIA. Serge has been battling a number of medical problems for the last few years. He retired from skiing some 7 years ago. A memorial for Serge will be this Saturday, April 5th from 3 to 6 pm at the Loveland Valley lodge. Ralph Waldo Emerson said you have succeeded if you leave the world a bit better. If that is the case, then Serge Couttet was very successful.
