Sanctuaries in the Snow

The Minnesota Shrine (Snowmass)



This Shrine no longer exists.  In April of 2021 the Snowmass Ski Patrol tore out this Shrine, along with 9 more Shrines.  Here are the names of the 10 Shrines that they tore out:  Ben Hogan Shrine, Bob Beattie Shrine, Bobby Jones Shrine, Chicago Blackhawks Shrine, Golf Shrine, Hunter S. Thompson Shrine, Kitty Cat Shrine, Minnesota Shrine, Spider Sabich Shrine, Stein Eriksen Shrine.
