For Dori Buerge, Saturday night’s Hall of Fame Dinner at Belleayre Mountain Ski Center was an event that brought both joy and sorrow.
Her husband Haywood, “Buerge” to his friends, was being honored by joining that prestigious group of inductees to the Belleayre Hall of Fame.
Only Buerge was not there to receive it.
You see, Buerge died three years ago, a victim of a vicious and rapid form of cancer. That cancer stopped his career as a snowmaker at Belleayre, a post he had held since the early 1980s.
