The Ed Stern Plaque and Bench (Snowmass)

The Ed Stern Plaque is a brass plaque attached to the back of a wooden bench.  The bench is located near the Powderhorn run at Snowmass.  If you have any information on Ed Stern, please send to the author at

It has been suggested that this bench is a memorial for Edgar B. Stern Jr., former owner of Park City Mountain Resort, founder of Deer Valley Resort, a director of Sears Roebuck and Co., and a resident of Aspen in the 1960's, but I have been unable to verify that.  He died on October 12, 2008.

Photos of the plaque and bench are below.
