Dave Sconzert Passes On
October 30, 2017
Ken Schoville reports: Minocqua Winter Park has many pieces to it's puzzle and we lost a key member when Dave Sconzert passed recently. There at the beginning, Dave served many roles in our ski community as a competitor, coach, board member, and as many will remember, an early and long time groomer, and of course friend, and unique character. Among skiers, Dave will perhaps be best remembered for his grooming, his pursuit of excellence in that capacity, and his ability to work the long dark hours so necessary to that trade in order to see the joy and satisfaction of many thousands of skiers that enjoyed his efforts. He will be remembered by our ski community as one of the oft times unsung heroes and hard workers who make our sport special, in the best of conditions and the worst of times, when we needed a smile, an outing to lift our spirits, Dave paved the way.
