IIRC in WM’s 2000 Ride Max and Edna are highlighted during a segment on Keystone where he’s holding wonderful hand sketches of the area originally conceived including the expansions they once envisioned now today skied. What a force those two and its amazing their pioneering forever demonstrated with A-Basin and Keystone. Certainly serves as a testament for the strength of a team married for over 70 years. I sure hope Max can best manage a loss of such a great life partner.

What a beautiful life!
Don, I recall that WM highlight. I'll have to revisit it.
Thanks for the beautiful foot print on our loved sport, Edna!

RIP Edna!
Hope to get as many runs in as she did!
Met Max & Edna 20 years ago in the parking lot of Keystone, & was lucky enough to take a run with Max that same day!
Ski Tip Lodge will never be the same!

I can remember a trip to Keystone in the early 80's and I recognized Max Dercum and his wife Edna in the liftline from pictures in the ski magazines. They both had racing GS skis on , helmets , etc. Didn't know there was a Penn State - Pa. connection from their earliest years. Making it to 94 is pretty great, but reading about her passing still registers a feeling of sadness that the inevitable faces us all, and eventually it all ends. The pioneers of the sport in this country are now unfortunately very old.

Sad? Why sad?

She had a full life. And a long one at that. If when I die, I had managed a life half as good, I'd want my friends to drink to it!
